The jubilant FreeRide836 Team, powered by Living Fuel, following their successful ride on May 26th.

Kiteboard fifty miles with a the daunting goal of raising $50,000 to build an orphanage for twelve beautiful orphans in Tanzania, Africa.

Back in March we introduced you to the innovative FreeRide836 to raise funds to accomplish just that.  Living Fuel is proud to serve as the title sponsor of the event, and company founders KC and Monica Craichy have been involved in the project since its inception.  Their oldest sons, Kyle and Austin, were members of the team that safely and successfully kiteboarded over fifty miles from Miami to Islamorada in the Florida Keys on Sunday, May 26th.  As of last count, the amount raised for the orphanage is approaching $60,000.

FreeRide836 is the brainchild of Mark Russell and his wife Tracey.  Their sons, Chase, Holt and Trey, were also members of the kiteboarding team. They plan to make it an annual event to continue to build and operate orphanages in Africa.  Donations can be made through their website at http://www.freeride836.com.  All proceeds will go directly to Orphan’s Heart, a tax deductible 501(C)(3) organization.

Click on the graphic above for a special Fox News story on the first FreeRide836 event, powered by Living Fuel.

The idea for kite boarding 50 miles from Miami to the Florida Keys in March started as a family mission trip to Guatemala. Mark Russell and his family were touched deeply by what they experienced in Guatemala and were motivated to do even more.

“My family realized we could no longer sit on the comfortable sidelines of life. We needed to make an impact, one child at a time,” Russell said. “We set a course to chart a new path that would aid in bringing the necessities of life to children like these. As an extreme sportsman, I was always able to ride to live, but now I was being called to ride togive.”  Russell’s goal is to raise $50,000 to build a self-sustaining home in Tanzania, Africa for 12 orphaned children. The target date for the first FreeRide836 event is a five-weekend window between March 1st and March 31st.

KC and Monica Craichy, Founders of Living Fuel, The Leader in Superfood Nutrition, are very pleased to be title sponsors for the event and their sons Kyle and Austin are scheduled to participate.  “Monica and I have been friends with FreeRide836 founders Mark and Tracey Russell for years,” Living Fuel CEO KC Craichy said. “When they told us about the event, where kite boarders from all walks of life would come together and ride 50 miles for the kids, we were thrilled to sign up as the title sponsor. It is such a wonderful and unusual event to raise awareness about the plight of orphans and to help raise the life-saving capital needed to put a roof over these precious little ones heads and food on their tables. It is such a blessing to minister to orphans!”
