Race Fundraiser for Q - Monday June 5

Our weekly Monday evening paddling race this week will be a fundraiser for Terence Quong or 'Q' an outrigger paddler in our community and partner to Tran Luu.  Last week he was diagnosed with Leukemia and is in the hospital receiving chemo.

Our standard race registration fee is $5 per person. This week that is a minimum. Register with Mark in the Ballard Elks parking lot after 6pm. Race starts at 7pm.  Open to all paddling craft.

Also on Sunday the Sandpoint Outrigger Club and Monster and Sea will host an event fundraiser - Paddle for Q at 1pm.

Race Details

Donate Directly for Q @ GoFundMe

From the GoFundMe and Facebook site:

"One of our dear friends has recently been diagnosed with leukemia.  Terence Quong, most of you know him as "Q", is currently undergoing treatment for this terrible cancer.

On Friday, May 26th, Q was admitted to the hospital and on Sunday, May 28th a biopsy has confirmed that he has AML. As you can imagine this has been quite a shock for Q and his family. They have had their hands full with medical test, doctors and insurance. They don't know what the total cost of treatment will be or how long Q will be in the hospital (current minimum estimation is 28 days), but we felt we needed to start something to help alleviate any financial stress so they can focus on treatment and healing. The money donated will be used to pay for medical expenses not covered by insurance and to help with living expenses. Please keep Q in your thoughts and thank you for your support. Your thoughts and generous donations are sincerely appreciated."
