|Cross the Line Paddle 2023|
The entire Cross the Line Foundation Board would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all paddlers, volunteers, sponsors, everyone that gave a donation, all the spectators, and the family members there to support the paddlers. Each of you are the reason that we had another successful day on June 17, 2023.
We are humbled by everyone’s willingness to be a part of this event and look forward to another great paddle in 2024!!
New Collaboration – Amelia Island Museum of History
Cross the Line Foundation is very excited to be partnering with the Amelia Island Museum of History on the Museum’s Veterans History Project.
The Veterans History Project collects, preserves and makes accessible the firsthand recollections of U.S. military veterans. This is a nationwide initiative, however the Amelia Island Museum of History focuses on veterans living in Nassau County. The interviews are maintained locally at the Museum and are also sent to the Library of Congress.
CTLF Board members will receive training in August 2023 and thereafter will be assisting the Museum with identifying potential interviewees, coordinating, scheduling, and conducting interviews.
Veterans Day RunPlans are in the works for the Veterans Day 5K run on November 11, 2023 in Fernandina Beach, FL.
We are working on making some updates to the run this year, more information will be coming out soon.
Get those running shoes dusted off and get ready to join us!
