Ski to Sea Fundraiser

Every year there is a huge festival in Bellingham called Ski to Sea.  I don't know all of the details, but I believe teams get together and ski, run (maybe it's bike, not sure), and kayak from Mt. Baker to Bellingham Bay.   There are over 400 teams registered this year and people come from all over to participate, watch, and volunteer.

My core class and I are going to be manning a booth in Fairhaven during this to help raise funds for COTP.  We were very fortunate to even get a table because there were so many groups that wanted one.  We get there to set up at 8:30 am and wont finish tearing down until 9:30 pm.  Nick and I are going to TRY and be there the whole time  (13 hours) so that we can answer as many questions about COTP as possible.  It's definitely going to be a LONG day.

We will be selling water, pop, and other baked goods, as well as Haiti Bracelets that we had made.  The bracelets say "Hope for Haiti" on one side and "Espwa pou Ayiti" on the other.  If you are in the Bellingham area you should definitely come see us.  Pray for decent weather so that we won't be out in the rain!!  We also are hoping for a large turnout!
