MAKE A SPLASH! Friday, August 17th - Sunday, August 26th
10 Days From the
Mountains to the Ocean
Free First Day Float!
Everyone who has been touched by transplant is invited for a free, gentle, flatwater float & paddle from Allentown to Bethlehem on Friday morning, August 17th to launch the trip: recipients, donor family members, donors, or anyone waiting for a transplant.
Boats, paddles and safety gear will be provided, a great safety team will help, and we'll finish around noon with lunch at Sand Island in Bethlehem. Please join me... it would be my pleasure to celebrate with you. No experience needed. Get the details and sign up on the "Itinerary" page.
is a 200+ mile, 10 day kayak trip I'm taking down the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers to the Atlantic Ocean.
I'll be paddling to promote organ donor awareness and to celebrate the miracle of my restored health after receiving a kidney transplant on December 21st, 2010.
It is my sincere hope that this trip inspires many more people to take action and

Lots of partners are collaborating for this adventure. On the following pages some will be sharing organ donation resources and knowledge. Others, inspired by the rivers and transplant experiences, are expanding the trip's impact through art, ecology, science, history, geography, watersheds and more.
Many of these partners are old friends from my volunteer work, and some are new friends I've made while planning the trip. Please dive in and explore everything they've contributed.
Yeah... I Know...
I'm in a Canoe, Not a Kayak... But
