The Bradley Fundraiser and

KRE Guide Reunion July 16-17

Meet the Bradleys

Talia Serra Bradley started guiding on the Kings in 1999. Shane Bradley started guiding in 2002. In 2010 they became our 21st staff couple to meet on the river and get married. Jack Brian Bradley was born on New Year's Eve in 2013 and Talia was pregnant with baby Luke when the family attended our 2017 Super Bowl party weekend and season kick-off in February. What we didn't know at the time was that Talia was battling a number of life-threatening medical issues, including a rare form of cancer, that were beginning to spiral downward. She gave birth to Luke John Bradley at 27 weeks so doctors could more aggressively treat her cancer. As of this writing, both are making steps in a positive direction, but they have a long and difficult road ahead to full recovery.

We are dedicating our season symbolically to the Bradley family. More importantly, we are dedicating one entire trip financially.

Please join us for an amazing trip on the Kings River and help support the Bradleys!

ALL FUNDS COLLECTED will go directly to the Bradley family to help offset medical costs for both Talia and Luke, including any donations in excess of trip fees.

Our goal

Sell all 72 available rafting slots and raise $25,000 for the Bradleys!!

Guide Reunion & Message from Jeb

This trip is also a reunion for ex-KRE employees and their families. Join us and re-connect with the KRE community and the beautiful Kings River that brought us together, knowing that you will also be providing support for a KRE family in need.

This year marks my 40th year on the Kings River. Now when people ask how old I am, I give my age in river years :).

We have kicked around the idea of a guide reunion for a couple of years to celebrate the company, our guides and the surrounding community. We still have many guides with decades of experience who are actively involved in the business -- many are working as guides this weekend!

The Serra and Bradley families have been integral parts of the KRE family for more than a quarter of a century. Brian is our most senior guide and we wouldn't know what to do without Stacey as she has been running the place for years.

Any help we can provide the Bradleys will be accepted with grace and humility.

This is truly a family in crisis. What better way to celebrate the KRE community we have built than to wrap this family up in love and support.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. I truly hope to see you on the river in July!
