Your Donations in Action
All donations collected will be applied directly and totally to our participation in the 2018 Great Pacific Race and to the charitable organizations selected by the team.
Putting ourselves out there- seeing what it feels like to cross a grand body of water, telling our story, and doing whatever we can to encourage ourselves, and others, to make a difference.
This is how your donation will be used.
As none of is have a boat and crew of our own to race with, The GPR Organizers will play a very skilled game of matchmaker and create crews of participants who want to get on the water no matter what. We will arrive in CA to start the race with our personal gear, our food, and our will...the boat with all the safety and tracking gear will already be there. $19k
