Epic Dam River Challenge is a kayaking and tent camping marathon aimed at raising funds for veterans' charities in our local community, and awareness for veterans' issues. The charities who benefit from this event are well known in the local veteran community, and are selected as recipients of the EDRC efforts because they serve our local veterans, do not have regular funding or the big-name sponsors of some of the national charitable organizations, and are operated by volunteers.
Our veterans have served our community well. It's time our community came together to serve our veterans. EDRC will travel 88 miles down the Colorado River, through 3 states, in 3 phases, over a 3 day period. Our hope is that this demonstration brings a wider audience for our veteran community.
How It Works...
Dam Kayakers create a team and recruit members, or join existing teams.
Teams then choose a charity for whom they will raise funds. See list below.
Team members gather donations from sponsors for their chosen charity by asking sponsors to visit the charity website and making a donation directly to the charity - no donations need be collected by team members. 100% of funds collected go directly to the charity.
Team members collect receipts for their donations.
Teams submit receipts at the time of the Epic event, for validation.
Teams then participate in the Epic Dam River Challenge phase or phases of their choice (all phases begin at 6 AM). See "event" page for details.
Teams compete against each other for funding their respective charities.
Teams and members challenge their peers, friends, and family to also create teams or join existing teams, and participating in the EDRC and raising funds.
Teams and individuals may receive prizes for winning certain challenges.
