A Standup PaddleBoard for Kylie to enjoy the summer with her daughter

Posted Jun 22, 2021
Over the last year year and a half, Kylie has had to do a lot of healing after the loss of her oldest daughter. She finds peace and joy in getting to spend time outdoors with her youngest daughter who is now 3 years old. Together they love to play in the water and love to borrow their friend's paddleboard to float on the lake. Kylie is asking for a paddleboard so she and her daughter can go whenever they would like and enjoy the calm waters and sunshine together.

Kylie is 40 years old and lives in Grand Junction, CO

During her teenage years, Kylie entered foster care after enduring physical abuse, emotional abuse, and neglect. She finally made the decision to run away when child welfare stepped in. Shortly after, Kylie and her sister were then placed with their aunt and uncle. She and her sister went on to be the first in their family to both graduate high school and college. Kylie went on to work in the social services field, helping others be safe and successful.

"I am very grateful and appreciative for my wish for a paddle board that Kim Raff submitted on my behalf and the granting of this. Thank you for considering me although I was in foster care 26 years ago. I often don’t qualify for things because of my age. My healing process has been beyond difficult. Finding a water sport I enjoy brings me closer to nature which has been very healing. I am ecstatic to have my very own paddle board to treasure and remind myself how much I am loved. "
