Thanks to the combined efforts of Area 3, District 6960, of Rotary International, specifically, the Rotary Club of Bonita Springs, the Rotary Club of Bonita Springs Noon, and the Estero Rotary Club, an entire container of wheelchairs will be headed to Honduras.

Together we raised $11,000.  Since $1,300 of these dollars is coming from Paddling for a Purpose under the leadership of Don & Hector Manley, this project also represents the first disbursement of Paddling for a Purpose as well.

This project could not have been completed without the leadership of Rotarian Steve Agius and the combined forces of the 3 Rotary Clubs who met on May 1, 2012 to raise awareness of funds for the Wheelchair Foundation.

Hector and Don are now continuing their Kayak down the Mississippi and continuing to raise funds.  Because of their efforts and the generous donations of Rotarians and supporters of Paddling for a Purpose, a second container of wheelchairs will be going to Hector’s country of El Salvador.  You can check on Hector’s progress at www.paddlingforapurpose.org.  Thank you very much.
