A floating fundraiser

CALDWELL – It’s rare that people can come together to turn a tragedy into a movement to bring about change. Sometimes it can seem almost impossible, but once in a while, a real difference can be made. That is exactly where the Red Nose River Float got its start. In honor of Chally Erb and Gary Arbaugh, the Red Nose River Float is a fundraiser for research to find a cure for the neurodegenerative disease ALS.

This non-competitive trip down the Greenbrier River is a great way to support this cause. There’s no race, no prizes to compete for and no reason to worry about crossing the finish line. Just a leisurely float down a river. The trip starts in Caldwell and ends at Island Park in
Ronceverte. After approximately 2.5 hours on the river, participants can enjoy themselves at the after-party on the island.

ALS has no cure but as long as people care, there is still hope. That is what this event is all about. Not racing, competing or grand prizes, just a pleasant day in the sun. What a great way to pay tribute to Chally Erb and Gary Arbaugh, and the funds raised are a great way to remind those suffering from ALS that there truly is still hope. Join the trip on June 17, starting in Caldwell and ending at Island Park in Ronceverte. For any other information about donating, participating, or for any updates about the event visit donate.wv.als.org.
