Missouri River Voyage - Paddle With Purpose for Water For People

The Missouri River Voyage (MORV) is a canoe trip that will begin on June 1, 2018, at the headwaters of the Missouri River near Three Forks, Montana. From there, the voyage travels through seven states: Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri. The planned route ends just north of St. Louis, where the Missouri joins with the Mississippi River. The voyage will finish on or before September 28, 2018. A satellite communicator will be carried, and supporters can follow the progress of the canoeists on the MORV online map hosted on a Garmin website. Videos and updates will be posted on the Paddle With Purpose River Voyages Facebook page to share the highlights of the trip. The Missouri River Voyage will cover 2,341 river miles. The goal is to raise $10.00 per mile for a total of $23,410. The voyage is self-funded by the on-the-water team of Gary and Linda De Kock from Grand Rapids, MI, so all sponsorship donations go directly to benefit Water For People.
