Joe's banner heads for the moon
Cornish toddler Joe Way who died in May 2008 has another challenge in his memory. After another successful Paddle for life in September this year, the appeal raised over £92,000.00 in just over two years.
The original Paddle for Life started after lifeguards from Fistral Beach held a Joe Way memorial paddle to raise money for charity in 2008 after the Newquay toddler passed away after battling numerous rare conditions to read Joe's story go to www.joeway.co.uk
Joes small banner has already travelled the equivalent of seven times around the world clocking up 270,000 km. Team Joe are now looking to get the figure up 400,000 km which is the equivalent of travelling from the earth to the moon
The small light weight banner has been taken under water, up mountains, out to sea by surfers and strapped to Joes dad when he did a parachute jump
Joes dad said "the idea is a simple one, just take one of Joes banners on a trip get a photo and email it to us, Scott Dickenson, the charities web developer has designed an amazing global map showing all the locations of the banner visits including photos. It's a great and fun way of getting Joes story out to new people".
Perranporth Signs who where a big sponsor of this year's paddle have just donated more banners which are ready to go global. If you are going away and would like to take part in this challenge, please call Matt Way on 07761079454 to get your banner.
