HARTFORD-As the much-anticipated summer vacation
approaches, Cocke County students will now have a new opportunity to look
forward to-a free whitewater rafting trip on the Pigeon River.
5 Rivers, which is under new management, Cripple Creek
Adventures, would like to do something for the students in Cocke County. From
May 20 to Aug. 10, any student in grades kindergarten to 12th grade can raft
for free with a paid parent or guardian. The only required cost for the
students is a $2 river usage fee.
As part of the company's policy, 5 Rivers/Cripple Creek
Adventures believes that corporate responsibility extends beyond its business
and leads it to take an active role in the community. The company strives for
its community involvement to be significant, with a focus on activities that
build both social and community-wide well-being both now and in the future.
