Kayaker to Paddle from Maine to Guatemala
July 2, 2014
A 63-year-old grandmother from Troy, Maine, is planning to kayak more than 2,500 miles from Maine to Guatemala to raise money for schools in that country, according to an article in the Portland Press Herald.
Deb Walters’ previous kayaking adventures include trips to the Arctic, where she encountered narwhals, polar bears and seals, and the Florida Everglades, where she paddled beside alligators and manatees. For this trip Walters, who has arthritis, plans to paddle slowly, stopping in coastal cities along the way to raise awareness and funds for the program Safe Passage so they can add additional grades to their schools.
