Hope Floats NC - Temporary Lapse of Sanity
:: 20 April 2013 ::
Last year, a team of kayaks set off in the fight against cancer... but it was not in Florida. The team was Hope Floats NC, and with a similar epiphany to our own, Kim and Chris Tart wanted to make a difference. Since their inaugural trip last Spring, the "Floaters" have become good friends of the Castaways. Today, they launch on their Second Annual trip: The Temporary Lapse of Sanity Tour!
Their trip this year will take them from Raleigh to New Burn down the Neuse River, a nearly 200 mile trek in only seven days (shortened from nine days last year). For the first few days, Castaway Craig Engler will join the Floaters on their own turf.
We wish Hope Floats all the best in their honorable fight. As they will learn, no trip is the same, and nothing worth doing is easy. We can hardly wait to see what new things we will learn on our own trip in June...
Tragedy in Boston
:: 15 April 2013 ::
The Castaways are deeply saddened by the events in Boston where Krystle Campbell, Lü Lingzi, and Martin Richard were killed, and nearly 300 others were injured.
Our own Castaway, Greg Trainor, was there to run in the 117th Boston Marathon for which he had been training since January. Thankfully, Greg completed the race an hour earlier and was not harmed in the explosions.
Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of those lost, and our prayers are with those whose lives have been changed forever. And so we're clear on this... we're not saying we want the people responsible to burn in hell, it's just too bad that they will.
