HOW do I become a part of Krusin’ for Kids 2017?
- Volunteer boat drivers are needed for giving rides to our guests from New Horizons and Milemarkers Therapy.
- Dock / Dry land volunteers are needed to assist with loading and unloading boats and help with docking.
- Parking lot volunteers are needed to direct kids to the dock area as they arrive.
- Life jackets are needed for all participants who receive a boat ride.
- Donations of items for auction at DS Open House at Horizon Motorsports or monetary gifts to either beneficiary are greatly appreciated.
Registration Forms: All Krusin’ for Kids volunteers must complete the 2017 Desert Storm registration forms available in your poker run registration packet, or here on the Lake Racer website. The registration form requirement applies to every boat driver, co-pilot / assistant that will be riding in the boat, or anyone else you are bringing to help with your boat or be stationed on the docks. You may have already completed these forms when registering for the poker run, but if not please submit your completed forms via email to Jim Nichols (firstname.lastname@example.org). We can also accept them at the event, but completing them in advance is a big help!
Life Jackets: At all times when on board a boat, the boat driver and every boat passenger must be wearing a life jacket. Please bring life jackets for yourself and your crew. Any extra vests are very much appreciated and can be any type of vest: water ski / water sports vests, Lifeline jackets, etc. We will need a variety of sizes on-hand to fit different people of all ages. This is an important element of our day, so please bring any extra vests that you are willing to share during the rides!
Donations: Donations are being be accepted for silent and live auctions that will be held during the Wednesday night Desert Storm Open House Party at Horizon Motorsports. All proceeds go to our two Krusin’ for Kids beneficiaries. Monetary gifts may also be given directly to either beneficiary or though the donation form below. We hope to see you at this annual Desert Storm meet & mingle, from 6:30 – 9:30 PM, beer and food to be provided. This is a great cause, so please share this information to anyone who may be interested!
