The event will be a fundraiser for two memorial funds that honor the memories of two amazing women from the southeast paddling community. The Shannon Christy Memorial Fund honor's Shannon's memory by supporting causes to empower and support women and girls in the outdoors and otherwise. The Live Like Maria Memorial Fund supports causes that were close to Maria’s heart, including paddling instruction and outdoor experiences for youth, river conservation and access, and empowering women in outdoor adventure pursuits. All money raised will be split between the two memorial funds, both of which are established at the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina.

Tickets are a $10 donation each and you can pay in cash or check on the day of the event. We'll be selling tickets in the morning at check-in as well as shortly after the paddle in the afternoon (but better to buy in the morning). Please bring exact change or make checks out to Action Learning Adventures (the LLC the event is run through) with "Green River Takeover 2019" written on the memo line.

The event itself is free, but we do ask that you make a donation to the memorial funds through purchasing at least one raffle ticket (which should be easy to do with all these awesome prizes)!
