The Hook Mountain Challenge, a benefit Kayak Race for the Nyack Homeless Project, is getting ready to launch. Kayak races and donors are needed. The fundraising flotilla will hug the Hudson River shore line on Sept. 28, 2014.
For the last 15 years the Nyack Homeless Project Ltd. (NHP), a non-profit 501(c)(3) non-sectarian, grassroots volunteer group has encouraged adults and teens in our community to make a difference by aiding those in need during the cold days of winter.
Last year the NHP made donations to more than 35 locations whose programs shelter and feed and clothe 8500 men, women, families and children in Rockland County. Examples include soup kitchens, family pantries, children’s breakfast and after school programs, homebound cancer/AIDS patients, childcare centers, battered women’s shelters, homeless programs, runaway teen shelters, homes for unwed mothers and emergency food programs.
If you want to paddle, or sponsor a paddler contact email@example.com or call 845-358-7122. Financial donations can be sent via PayPal at: www.nyackhp.org or make checks payable to Nyack Homeless Project and send to: Nyack Homeless Project, Attn: HMC PO Box 164 Nyack, NY 10960 For further information
The Nyack Boat Club will provide on-the water support for the Hook Mountain Challenge. The rain date for this event is Oct 5.
