"There is a community of people who are fighting for you. Our hope is that this will give you a moment of peace during a crazy time. Love from the Monster and Sea Community".

This simple statement is the mission of the 24- to raise money for families dealing with cancer.

We will do so by having three to four teams of paddlers present on the water for two hour shifts for a total of 24 hours from Saturday April 15th at 8 am  to Sunday, April 16th at 8 am.  

Why paddle? To show our solidarity and vigilence to those dealing with cancer. We will paddle in solidarity to help warriors realize that they are not alone in their battle.

Medical expenses are not the only burden a family has to be when cancer rears it's terrible head. Expenses from travel back and forth to appointments and treatments, food and lodging near speciality centers, childcare, loss of work and income; the list alone is overwhelming.

The more money we raise, the more we can give to those in our communities. One hundred percent of donations will be given to families who are fighting cancer, one envelope at a time.

In order to have funds released by GoFundMe in the interest of full clarity I need to provide the following information:

1- The funds are being transferred to my personal bank account. I will cash out the money and meet with the Wilmington Team and write notes in the cards, insert the cash, and will have team members distribute the cards.
2- Funds will be hand delivered by team members to families that we selected during the 24.

Thank you again for all of your support.

Good Morning! Thank you to everyone who donated. We had an amazing weekend full of laughs and challenges. We can not thank you enough for your outpouring of support and kindness.

We talked last night about designating families to receive these funds and can not wait to distribute the money we've raised.

We were blessed with a beautiful (albeit windy) weekend and are truly thankful for this opportunity.
The first crew!
The second crew!
