On Friday July 28th, 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. CANICA supports about 30 local families in assisting with the transportation costs to and from Puerto Vallarta and Guadalajara, the location of their cancer treatment center.These families typically take a bus from PV to Guadalajara for the treatments. The round trip fare for one mother and child is around $86 US dollars (or $1,520 pesos). Their 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 6pm, 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 to promote the 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 from Friday, July 28th at 6pm until Saturday the 29th at 6pm at Crossfit Zapata (Address: Naranjo 330, Emiliano Zapata)
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.
Founded in 2003, CANICA aims to provide comprehensive support to children and young people with cancer who are currently cared for in public hospitals, respecting their natural dignity as a person.
Keep it Kinetic,
Greg and Hillary
