Canoe/Kayak Event a Success!

A big thank you to the Washington Canoe Club and everyone who came to the Canoe/Kayak Event last weekend! The weather was beautiful and the event was a great success, raising $240 for Water For People.

Whit Overstreet of the Potomac Riverkeepers gave the history of Riverkeepers and their mission to protect the waters that support our lives. Whit also provided some details on the Potomac and discussed problems facing the local DC water supply, such as combined sewer overflows. Donna Callejon, of Global Giving and a member of the Water For People Board of Directors, spoke on the importance of Water For People’s work and success. Lunch was marked by a delicious BBQ and four lucky raffle winners. Although the water was high due to a severe storm the night before, everyone made it to the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Island and back, and had a great time doing so!
