Last Chance to Help in 2013

Can you believe another year has passed?

And what a year it was! With a dedicated team of volunteers, we continued to grow as an organization and work towards connecting people, communities, and organizations to rivers:

In January, we had 28 people join us on the Lower Yuba river for the River to Reel. Some kids had never been on a river before!

In February, a record number of racers joined us for the 21st Annual Cow Patty Pageant.

Four pre-Cal100 race clinics helped prep paddlers for the inaugural hundred mile ultra marathon paddle race on the West Coast!

Our Redding Community Paddle Day had almost 50 paddlers join us on a beautiful section of the Sacramento River.

The California 100 over Memorial Day Weekend was a huge success with 97 racers, truck loads of volunteers, and incredible enthusiasm!

In addition to these events we hosted on-water trash Cleanups in the Sacramento River and in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and assisted the California Native Plant Society in locating new populations of plants!

Connecting people, communities, and organizations to rivers is what we love to do. Here at Rivers for Change, we continue to be a mostly volunteer organization and in order for us to keep many of our programs and events going we need your help.

Please consider making an end of the year donation today to help support us in 2014, your gift will make a difference:

  • $50 helps put on a Community Paddle Day
  • $100 supports a River Cleanup
  • $250 assists one new paddler to train and compete in the California 100.

We thank you for your support and look forward to paddling with you!Paddles Up for our Rivers!
