go the paddle steamers - full steam ahead!

Ok so kayaking and raising money to help charities isn't for everyone. But I believe its worth the effort especially when its for such a great cause such as making a difference to a child in need and there family - to share a smile and make life easier.... Lifestart supports children with disabilities and their families to achieve a better quality of life.

Lifestart Kayak for Kids is an inspirational paddling challenge on Sydney Harbour. It raises funds for very special kids aged from birth to school age who have an intellectual disability or developmental delay. These include conditions more widely known such as Down syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorder to much rarer genetic disorders. Lifestart provides early childhood intervention services to ensure these kids have the best possible start in life.

On Sunday 28th March Lifestart Kayak for Kids is taking place, it's a 17.5km course running from Blues Point to Clontarf in four stages of approximately 4.5km.

So to boost myself with abit of exercise at the same time as to share some smiles with some kiddies and there families. Ive joined a team of 12 - were called "The Paddle Steamers" and between us are kyaking Lifestarts - Kayak for kids event.

Our goal is to reach $5000 in donations, its a high target but certainly worth a try. If your feeling the love please help us reach our goal by donating to our team for this worthy cause (even a gold coin will be worth more than u think) Feel free to come along be our sideline cheerleaders too!

Training this Sunday at Manly! Love it!

Thanks in advance - Hearts, Hugs, Smiles and Kisses
