KIDZ WHO CARE EVENT #3
Surf-A-Thon Fundraiser to benefit the family of surfing legend Buttons Kaluhiokalani.

Hello. My name is Delaney Kuepper. I am 9 years old and I love surfing. Yesterday, one of the icons of surf passed away (Buttons Kaluhiokalani). Although I never met Buttons, I want to help raise money for his family. To accomplish this, I am going to try and catch 54 waves (the years he lived) in a single surf session at my home break (Cardiff Reef, CA) on 11/16/13 - even if takes me all day to do it.

Please help me raise funds to support his family and honor his contribution to Surfing. You can Donate a flat dollar amount
or Pledge a dollar amount per wave. With your help, I hope to raise $5,000. I hope this will be a blessing to his family so please do whatever you can to support them.

If you are surfing Cardiff that day, please say hello and we can catch a wave together.

Ever since I can remember, my family, my neighborhood and my school have spent time helping others who are less fortunate than we are. I feel very blessed to have good health and enjoy the sports I love. My favorite sport is Stand Up Paddle Surfing although I like all ocean sports (such as longboarding, boogie boarding, snorkeling, boating, fishing etc.).

Recently, I decided that I wanted to try and do something myself to help others - especially kids who cannot do some of the things that I can do. So we came up with the idea of raising money and awareness for kids by doing something I like to do best - being on my paddleboard.

So with the help of my parents I learned about a hospital that helps kids with all kinds of health issues including deadly diseases like cancer. It is called Rady Children's Hospital and it is located in San Diego, close to where we live. I also came up with a name for my new effort: Kidz Who Care.

11-Mile Open Ocean Paddle
Even though I am only 7 years old I am going to do my best to paddle 11 miles in the Pacific Ocean, with the help of my friends, supporters and family. This journey starts in San Diego, CA at Cardiff Reef and heads South exactly 11 miles to La Jolla Shores. I am currently testing and training on long distance race boards to build up the endurance necessary to make this distance.

Fortunately for me King's Paddle Sports is supporting me by providing me with a custom 12 foot board made just for my size. It is the best equipment available and will help improve my chances. Even though I am a strong little girl, this is a long distance and I will do my best to complete it. I know that is going to be a major struggle but no where near the struggles that kids I met at Children's Hospital have.
