Amputee Kayakers Raise Funds for Extremity Games


Three amputees have circumnavigated the waters of Pinellas County, Florida, kayaking 100 miles to raise funds for the 2007 Extremity Games by College Park.

"'Topa Honu--Kayak for a Cause' was a great success," said marketing manager for College Park and the Extremity Games. Four-time national surfing champion Sean Fitzgibbon and teammates Jeff Fabiszewski and Todd Salley kayaked the distance in four days, May 3-6, averaging 25 miles per day. "Along the way, they encountered dolphins, sea turtles, and sharks," said Geno.

Fitzgibbon along with hundreds of other athletes with disabilities will be competing in the Extremity Games July 18-21 in Orlando, Florida. Events include BMX/mountain biking, kayaking, rock climbing, skateboarding, surfing, wakeboarding, and Moto-X. Cash prizes will be awarded.
