CBF’s Director of Major Giving, David Tucker said, “We appreciate everything Brendan does, and it is a tremendous opportunity for CBF to support an organization that educates it participants in support of our mission to Save the Bay.”
The following are the award-winning camp participants from 2019 Annapolis, St. Mary’s, and DC programs:
“Like my late husband Kurt, I believe in giving back to the kids and the community. It truly is special to receive this award and am glad Brendan continues to keep Kurt’s legacy and memory alive”, Wilson said. The award recognizes a like-minded Donnybrook (Jim Muldoon’s racing yacht) crew member who has volunteered their time to contribute to the development of Brendan sailors.
Since the program was conceived, more than 600 young people, ages 11 to 18, have been introduced to the sport of sailing and in the process have improved relationships, built self-esteem, and gained confidence and maturity.
“It has been a privilege working with Brendan for the last 23 years,” said Dorval. “To watch the participants, learn and grow through sailing has been an amazing experience. We are looking forward to continuing the positive impact we’ve had locally while offering these opportunities to students with learning differences in other communities through our partnership with the Spirit of America program.”
