Two take on the challenge.

Hannah Grow -Wisconsin River 2007

It's official! Hannah and Boo will team up to compete in the Missouri 340 Canoe Kayak Race on August 4-9, 2009. 340 miles from Kansas City to St. Charles, Mo.. Their goal; raising awareness around breast cancer and the need to find a cure.

They are no strangers to adventure paddling or each other, both have participated in the Hardcore Adventure Camp becoming great friends and paddling partners over the years. It just makes sense that they would be in this next adventure together.

It was exciting news to hear back from Scott the race director. In a collaborative effort we have put together a safety plan to insure an adventurous and safe trip down the Missouri River. No special accommodations will be made,though maintaining safety is paramount. The two will compete in the women's tandem class adhering to all rules and expectations of all participants.

Thank you to Jenny Kruger and Mark Przedwojewski for arranging the use of a Kruger Cruiser for the girls to train and compete in. We appreciate this generous offer.

Another big thanks to Mark for his continuing support of assisting us in finding a cure. Mark as in the Everglades Challenge has offered to paddle alongside the girls in the MR340 acting as a safety boat and videographer of their journey. Not to be left out of the action, the dads will be in a cruiser as well following the action and cheering them on.

Let the training and preparation begin!

The word on the street (river) is that you kicked Dad out of the boat and took on a younger, healthier more funner paddler to go with you.
