Canadian Adventurer Rod Wellington will paddle the Wolf River from its source to its confluence with the Mississippi River, a distance of some 105+ miles. Rod Wellington will be part of a group of 8 paddlers including British Adventurer Dave Cornthwaite. Their journey sets on April 7th, 2012,
They will stand up paddle (SUP) on the Wolf River in snake infested swamp, slop through muddy marsh, surrounded by the unmatched beauty of nature, making our way to the Mighty Mississippi River in one week!
This paddle is to benefit and raise awareness of Operation Broken Silence. OBS is a non-profit organization based in Memphis, TN. that strives to protect the innocent by confronting social injustices, speaking and acting against the growing threats of mass atrocities and modern slavery in our world today.
Their goal is to raise at least $5000 through inviting individuals to get in the water, have fun, and win prizes. All donations received will go to Operation Broken Silence’s Community Aftercare and Restoration Endeavor.
