Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - On Friday, July 28, 2017, Greg and Hillary Kennon of the Kinetic Kennons, along with the members of Crossfit Zapata, will 'Row to Guadalajara.' They will row (on a rowing machine) for 24 hours straight to raise money for CANICA, a center in Puerto Vallarta that helps children with cancer.
The rowers' goal is to raise enough money to help each family make at least one trip to their treatment. With that goal, they need your help!
Starting at 6:00 pm, Crossfit Zapata will hold a FREE community fiesta that will include food, massages, entertainment, and more (donations accepted). The goal of this event is to row 330 kilometers (the distance from Puerto Vallarta to Guadalajara), to raise money for and promote awareness of CANICA and the families they support. They hope to help alleviate the financial burdens that come with traveling to and from cancer treatments.
Athletes and community members will be rowing for 24 hours straight and all members of our great city are invited to come party, eat, and participate in this one-of-a-kind charity event that's set to be held from Friday, July 28th at 6:00 pm until Saturday the 29th at 6:00 pm at Crossfit Zapata, located at Naranjo #330 in Colonia Emiliano Zapata. More information about the event can be found on the Kinetic Kennons Facebook page.
As an integral part of the Puerto Vallarta community, Crossfit Zapata is striving to use their fitness skills and abilities to raise awareness and funds for local charities. Your support in this endeavor will help these children to get the treatments they need and together, we can help lighten the financial burden on these families in our community.
If you cannot attend the free community fiesta on July 28th, you can make a donation online at YouCaring.com.
