First Mates Assigned to Boats
August 21, 2010
Be sure to check out the Teams page to see the pairing of First Mates to Captain's and their boats.
As you know by now, this year’s fund raising will be built around teams made up by adding a ceremonial “First Mate” to each racing boats crew as a way of personalizing this fight and keeping the focus on helping those who have or will suffer from these terrible diseases. “First Mates” are either survivors or patients currently involved in the fight and while they will not be aboard for the racing they will be doing all they can to raise donations and aid in team morale.
Each team will be encouraged to raise as much as possible as all of their donations will be credited to that team and will go to determining the fund raising awards to be presented at the awards ceremony on Sunday afternoon.
We hope that each team will reach out beyond their crew and enlist donations from all friends, relatives, coworkers and employers who can donate in support of that team. Visit the Sponsor a Team page now and get on board.
