Last week the Peters family spent the week exploring the Alaska wilderness with Kippenberg Creek Kids founder Larry Beyer. They caught loads of northern pike (well over 100 in a day), did some hiking, plenty of relaxing, and did some travel by float plane. Oconto River Kids connected the family with KCK earlier this spring and ORK funded a portion of the of the trip. We are happy the Peters family had such a wonderful time.
Thank you, Larry and Lori Beyer with KCK for your continued partnership and commitment to families. The family recently sent the following photos and thank you email to ORK.
Thank you Kippenberg Creek Kids and Oconto River Kids for the once in a lifetime trip to Alaska.
Special thanks to Larry and Lori Beyer for making us feel right at home. The home cooked meals were amazing. The fishing was incredible and the scenery was beautiful. Larry's boat ride down the winding creek was as fun as a roller coaster. Every day was filled with something new and exciting.
When Luke was diagnosed with a rare adult brain cancer the doctors said that this type of tumor had a 3-5 year life expectancy. We have made it very important to make family time a priority. This trip to Alaska has made memories that will last a lifetime.
Thank you all for making this trip possible for our family, your generosity is truly appreciated!
Keith, Sue, Ryan, Nicholas, Emily and Luke Peters.
