This year, due to the ongoing pandemic we've had to temporarily hang-up our paddles and move to a virtual format. Our goal is to keep the virtual event health-driven and engaging while upholding the camaraderie-based, team-building nature of the event in our fundraising efforts.
Congratulations to Bob Jackson, Elizabeth Williams, Nathan Johnson & Deb Curley-Dempsey ('cuz we simply couldn't pick only 3) for being chosen as the winners of Week # 1's Challenge "Stay Healthy, Stay Active."
Bob has run in three virtual Marathons since the pandemic began...and he runs to and from work each day!!! Deb has been chasing her toddler, has him helping tend her garden, and is ultimately spending as much time as possible out in the natural world to remain healthy & grounded. Elizabeth has Bodie and Molly to keep her outdoors...in rain or shine. And Nathan just biked up to Point Lookout! Way to stay healthy and active, friends!
Challenge: Show us what you've been doing to stay active and healthy throughout the pandemic. We want to see your photos, videos, or even a sentence or two on your methods. Meditation, gardening, cycling, running, boating, walking...even housekeeping and child-rearing count! ;-)
Email: [email protected] by no later than 9/26/20 and we will select the top 3 choices to share on next week's page. Winners will be entered into a prize drawing.
Penny Sanburn of Dynamic Dragon Boat Co. demonstrates all things Dragon Boat Racing in a video she recorded EXCLUSIVELY FOR our 2020 Virtual Drums & Dragons Event! She will demonstrate paddling techniques that can be used for all types of boats, including kayaks, canoes, and of course...dragon boats! She also shares insight on how best to cope during the pandemic, information on the sport and the incredible work these important fundraisers are doing around the country, and much more! There's also a surprise guest who shows up around minute 19...but you have to watch it to catch it! Enjoy!
Congratulations to Kris Bryant for winning last week's "Pay it Forward" wellness challenge!
"COVID has closed Physical Therapy access for many seniors. They also don't get outside much. So, I took this dear lady along when I went to see my horse and made sure she got some good fun exercise to replace her physical therapy." - Kris
