Help make November 13th, Give to the Max Daya success for RCBC.  It is a one-day giving extravaganza--- a state-wide, social media and email campaign for Minnesota non-profits.  Last year over $17 million was raised for Minnesota non-profits!! 

Athlete funded "Pay it Forward" matching grant: For every $100 donated, RCBC athletes will donate 5 hours to 2nd Harvest Heartland. We are committing up to 200 volunteer hours to match $4000 of donations in an effort to fight hunger.  The club gets money for equipment and travel, plus we help to fight hunger.  A great opportunity for our youth to give back to the community.

Even a $10 gift could turn into an additional $2,000.  GiveMN has hourly incentives on November 13th--a random donation is selected every hour and the non-profit recipient is given an extra $2,000.  

There are a lot of great causes to support in Minnesota; we are asking you to support youth paddling as well.  Our program makes canoe and kayak racing affordable for local youth.  It is the only program of its kind in the midwest. We offer full "scholarships" based on ability to pay. We provide nearly all of the equipment necessary for kids to get on the water.  We are 100% volunteer (coaches and directors), every dollar you provide goes directly for the purchase of equipment or to offset travel costs.  And we are successful--we create fun, win races, place youth on podiums and on national teams, teach life-long skills, and so much more than just paddling skills.

Donate and learn more about our great program by pressing here.

Thank you for your continued support,

Joe Manns and Marsh Jones

Fall has fell - we are off the water until it freezes...then we will
