Jeff Dykstra is competing in the upcoming Race to Recovery – St. Croix Coral Reef Swim.

I am asking for US$20 donations for the St. Croix Coral Reef Swim. Our goal is to get 1,000 people to donate US$20 toward this effort to support relief efforts on St. Croix through Cane Bay Cares. We’re trying to show the world that St. Croix is still paradise worth fighting for and raise some money for the Cane Bay Cares relief drive while we’re at it,” explains Jeff Dykstra, a Cane Bay Partners employee and open water swimmer.

We’re launching the Race to Recovery sponsorship opportunity with the race on November 5th. It begins at the world-famous Buck Island Reef National Monument and concludes at the Mermaid beach of The Buccaneer Resort. We’ve raised $60,000 of our short-term goal to raise $200,000, which will trigger a matching donation by Cane Bay Partners Co-Founders David Johnson and Kirk Chewning.

Donations go completely to relief efforts on St. Croix and help to bring supplies and aid to people impacted by both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.”
