Paddling the Danube 

Having posted the occasional article here, tracing the river Danube from its source in Germany to the Black Sea, it was nice to learn that a team of Kayakers, twin sisters Chrissy and Eve Conyers, with their friends Wayne and Josh, are setting out on June 26 from Regensburg, Germany, to paddle about 2500 km to the Romanian estuary.

The group are using the trip to raise money for the children of CanTeen, who have grown up living with cancer. The girls have been members of CanTeen throughout their childhood because their brother, Adrian has been battling with a brain tumor. CanTeen is an Australian support organisation for young people (aged 12-24) that are living with the disruption of cancer; this includes ot only the cancer patients themselves, but their brothers and sisters and also young people with parents or primary carers with cancer.

German football fans are now heading to Vienna for the Euro 2008 final, so they have chosen a particularly exciting time for their adventure. Let's wish Team Kayak luck and if you are able to support them with a sposorship donation, go to Eveyday Hero, where you will be able to make a donation and enable them to 'Raise More Than a Sweat for CanTeen'.
