It was quite a finish as Marissa (Boo) and Hannah (Hashbrown) finish the HH50. 11:57:17 is their finish time. They kept the boat moving over 4 miles an hour which includes 1 1/2 hours of portaging 3 dams, lunch stop, and a visit with Jim Woodruff and friends on the Grand River. .
Boo and Hashbrown make a donation to the Verlen Kruger Memorial and have a brick made that will border the bronze statue at the Portland Riverside Park.
Big thank you to our sponsors - Kruger Canoes / RP LUMBER / Kialoa Paddles. The girls appreciated Mark taking the time and spending the day with him on the Grand River, Loved the fact that RP Lumber embraces their dream of a breast cancer free world, and last but not least really liked the Kialoa Paddles.
There was lots of drama on the water - thunderstorms, high winds, raging water, the girls had quite the experience. The biggest supporter besides the Dads, was Jenny Grow that ran support and met us at the portages and bridges, offered tons of encouragement.
We are off to paddle our first event leading up to the MR340. The challenge starts on Saturday at 7:00am.
