Kaz and I will be canoeing 5 miles as part of a 100-person flotilla on the Connecticut River from Hatfield to Northampton on Sunday, September 10, as part of All Out Adventures' 15th annual Kayak-a-thon!  We would be so grateful for your support!

We're paddling to raise awareness and to support the continued availability of accessible outdoor recreation programs for people of all ages and abilities throughout Massachusetts. Time spent outdoors in nature improves our mental, physical, and emotional well-being, and All Out Adventures helps to promote access to the outdoors for people of all ages and all abilities, including those of us with disabilities and our loved ones, seniors and veterans. I could not participate in these outdoor adventures without the support from All Out Adventures. They are a life-changing organization!


ABOUT The 15th Annual Kayak-a-thon

Join me in supporting the 15th Annual Kayak-a-thon, the signature fundraiser of All Out Adventures

On Sunday, September 10, approximately 100 paddlers of all ages and abilities will gather to kayak, canoe, and SUP from Sunderland to Hatfield to Northampton on the Connecticut River to raise funding and awarenes of adaptive outdoor recreation programs.

All Out Adventures is a Northampton, MA based nonprofit organization that facilitates about 180 outdoor recreation program each year throughout Massachusetts for veterans, seniors, and people with disabilities and their loved ones.  Through adaptive equipment, and high-trained staff, All Out Adventures works to break down barriers to participation in outdoor recreation.  Funds raised from the Kayak-a-thon support AOA's efforts to continue to provide these programs at no or low cost so that people of all ages and abilities can participate, regardless of financial means.
