Yesterday KGAN, news station out of Cedar Rapids Iowa, came up to Decorah to do an interview about our campaign. It was great to meet with Marissa Scott and we feel the interview went really well! Sounds like we will be doing another interview with KGAN when coming through Iowa which is awesome!
Check out the interview under our MEDIA tab, "KGAN News Interview".
Well in exactly three weeks we will start paddling from Lake Itasca. Safe to say we are both antsy to get started, but still have a few more things to get ready for the trip. Pretty excited today as we got our story featured in our hometown Decorah newspaper!

Welcome to our Paddle for Prevention site! We are currently in the final planning stages for our source to sea Mississippi River canoe trip. On June 3rd we will begin our trip by driving up to the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Northern Minnesota. On June 4th we will begin our adventure by embarking from Lake Itasca. Our trip will take roughly 60-70 days and we will end in the Gulf of Mexico. We will be working alongside Tyler Rinken Photography as he will be editing all our photos/videos on our journey down river. We plan to collect 3-5 days worth of photos/videos along the way and we will upload them to the site as soon as possible.
Hope you enjoy following us on our trip down the Mississippi in the upcoming months!
