The Monster and Sea 24 -Team Newport

$18,250 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 146 people in 6 months
One in three people will battle cancer at some point in their life. Cancer is an all-encompassing disease that taxes our energy, spirit, and finances to their limits. What about the rest of us? It's our job to stand up and lend a helping hand-be it emotional, spiritual, or financial when we can. That's why Monster and Sea began The 24 four years ago. We let people know that we are here to help, and we follow those words with deeds. That's why, for the third year in a row, Team Newport, a group of paddlers, will paddle for 24 straight hours on April 14, 2018 to raise funds to help people battling cancer. Your donations go straight to helping those that need it most during their most desperate hours. Thank you for your help, and #gobecauseyoucan! ***GoFundMe has asked that I explain a couple of things about the 24 before the event in order to make sure that we are operating honestly. As there are a lot of fraudulent GoFundMe accounts out there, I appreciate their desire to make sure that patrons are treated honestly.*** The people that receive the funds raised by Team Newport from the 24 go directly from us to community members who are fighting cancer. Sometimes these are friends of ours who are in need. Often they are people who are brought to our attention by friends and family or other community members. Donations are generally delivered in the form of cash or cashiers check directly to the recipient. In each instance, the funds are delivered by hand directly to the recipient in order to assure that they receive the intended funds.

What an event! I wanted to thank everyone who came out and joined us on the beach, paddled with us, prayed, sent good vibes, and donated to the 24 this year!

Each year that we have done the 24, we have been blessed to have such strong community support. Our families and friends are willing to take their time and hard-earned money, and trust that we will do good with it. It's very humbling, and a responsibility that we take very seriously. Alas, several worthy candidates are all ready known to us with more contacts being made.

This is the hardest/ best part of being involved with the 24. This is why we do this. And we're not stopping as long as long as we can paddle or until there's no one left who needs the help. We're still taking donations and appreciate every dollar we've raised.

On behalf of Team Newport, THANK YOU!

Thank you again for donating and being a part of the Monster and Sea 24.

"our bodies are going to challenge us and our minds will try to play tricks on us.

But the heart? It will be steady and true. Loud and unwavering. Let's Go!

This is the 24."
