Kayaking – 14 Rivers in 7 Days, Charity Event, Jamaica

Over the last few months you may have heard me mention the fact that my Husband, Tony represents Jamaica in Sprint Kayaking.Β He is also the Brand Ambassador for the planned Kingston Aquatic Sports Academy (KASA).

As part of this role Tony will be completing a challenge where he will be kayaking around Jamaica on 14 rivers in 7 days.Β The challenge commences on the 5th March 2017 and is gathering momentum with interviews on a number of media platforms both in Jamaica and UK.

This challenge has never been attempted before in Jamaica and Tony has the sponsorship and support of the Jamaica Tourist Board, Jamaica’s National Environmental and Planning Agency(NEPA), Victoria Mutual Group and Jamaica’s Lawn Bowling Team, Reggae Rollers.

With Maureen Smith, Jamaica Sport and Leon McNeil, President of Jamaica Kayak and Canoe Federation.

Tony’s goal is to raise Β£50k for KASA, the funds will be used to purchase kayaks, additional equipment and premises in Kingston Harbour. Tony and KASA share the vision of ‘Changing Lives Through Sport’ by giving the community the opportunity to participate in kayaking and other water sports such as rowing, sailing and dragon boat racing. And in the long term develop a Jamaican Kayaking Team to compete internationally as well as host national and international races on the island.

Tony and I would like your help and support. If you could be so kind to share this post and or make a donation via the just giving page (CLICK HERE), it would really be appreciated.

Once we are in Jamaica we will be posting a number of updates on social media so you can keep updated with the challenge.

Tony is featured in this week’sΒ Voice Newspaper and you can read the article here.

Thanks again.

Until Next Time
