USA Wildwater Needs Your Help

by John Pinyerd
USA Canoe/Kayak
Wildwater Chairman

March 22, 2009 -- Atlanta, GA

The USA Wildwater Team needs your help. I am writing to you to see if you can support of our beloved sport of Wildwater in some form or fashion.

At a minimum, we need to raise enough funds to keep the Wildwater program functioning at a base level and we have set our preliminary 2009 budget at this level. This includes providing uniforms and assisting our Juniors with enough funds to enable them to go the Junior World Championships this summer as they are the key to our future. In addition, we need to fund our "Performance Fund" for our top racers to help keep them in the sport (by off-setting more of their expenses) by rewarding them for their efforts. We also would like to have a great Nationals which is a designated international event, and be able to fund a base level of coaching and training camps.

All donations will be really helpful.

Please make all checks payable to USA Canoe/Kayak and mark the memo field "For Wildwater". You can send your (tax deductible) donations to me (recommended):

or send them directly to:
