Beginning Saturday, Tennessee Riverkeeper will begin the Stand Up for Our Rivers, Explore the Tennessee River 2013: Stand Up Paddle Board Challenge.
Sean Miller, owner of Miller Fitness has taken the challenge to paddle the Tennessee River from Chattanooga, to the AL/MS state line on a Stand Up Paddle Board. Karen Thomas, board president of Tennessee Riverkeeper, will be joining Mr. Miller in a canoe with volunteers including: Cookie Stoner (TNRk board member), Liz Brown, Mark Martin and Riverkeeper David Whiteside on this 250-mile trip to raise awareness about the pollution issues the Tennessee River faces and what can be and is currently being done to improve water quality.
The fundraising goal, benefiting the non-profit organization Tennessee Riverkeeper, for this event is $10,000 ( $10 for each square mile of the Tennessee River watershed).
