The Land O'Lakes Rowing Club Second Annual Row and Paddle for Hospice
The Land O’Lakes Rowing Club’s second annual Row and Paddle for Hospice brought in just more than $2,000 for HPH Hospice. The same event in 2010 raised $1,550, and club founder Mary Jane Kranendonk said the goal is to keep bringing in more each year.
“It means a lot to our family to help them because they have helped us so much,” Kranendonk said. HPH offered support to the Kranendonk family to help deal with the loss of Kranendonk’s oldest son, Thomas, four years ago in a tractor-trailer accident. “They offer a wonderful grief camp each March for children who have lost significant people in their lives,” Kranendonk said. Her son John attended the camp after Thomas died. By Kyle LoJacono of www.cnewspubs.com
