our work possible
Calling all paddlers!
To keep our swimmers safe we need twenty-one kayak and SUP volunteers for the final edition of Jacksonville Triathlon Series, Race #3 on Saturday morning, August 4th. We will donate $25 to Special Olympics Florida - Duval County on behalf of each volunteer. Use the link below and scroll down to Kayak Support to sign up. If you have any questions, please email me at or send a PM. See you on the swim course! We appreciate your support and company on the St. Johns. We could not do this without you! #activateStJohns
IMPORTANT! If you volunteered before and did not register, please email me your name and contact info so we can donate to Special Olympics on your behalf. We are grateful to you for all the support and invite you to join us at RAM after Up the River Downtown on September 22 to present a check to Special Olympics.
