NECKRA Awards Grant to Kaitlyn McElroy

posted Jul 20, 2011, 12:23 PM by Neckra WebAdmin
The 13 member Executive Committee of  NECKRA has approved a grant to Kaitlyn McElroy of $200, to support her expenses for travel and lodging and food for the World and Pam Am Championships that she will be attending. This amount matches the amount that NECKRA granted to Mark Wendolowski earlier this year. As members of the US Kayak and the US Wildwater teams, neither Kaitlyn nor Mark receive travel money to compete in the international competitions.

We are enormously proud of both Mark and Kaitlyn. Mark recently competed in the ICF Wildwater Sprint World Championships in Augsburg, Germany.  Kaitlyn is our Olympic hopeful for London 2012. By their hard work and success, they represent their home club, NECKRA, and the US admirably.

Thank you very much,
Priscilla Reinertsen
NECKRA President
