24 Hour 'Boat Cruise

The most fun you can have in 24 hours. period.

Thank You Sponsors!

Why:

In the 1st Annual 24-Hour Boat Cruise 2017,  through grassroots fundraising efforts, we raised over $11,000, more than double our initial fundraising goal.  The money raised through the Cruise fully funded two years of the “Listo Para Kinder” program for local non-profit Integrated Community. In our 2018 event, the additional funds raised by the Boat Cruise supported the expansion of IC’s other early childhood education programs such as Bright By Three and Madres Enseñando which educate parents on how to be the number one teacher in their child’s life.   

 

As we prepare for the third annual event, we are looking to teams to reach for the stars, exceeding past years event totals.  The 2019 fundraising goal is to exceed $15,000. And we want you to join in the fun!!

Who:

You and your bike loving friends and family!  Teams of no less than 2, no more than 6.  Kids encouraged/invited.  Those 10 and under do not count towards the 6 person limit.
