Plainfield River Tubing recently donated proceeds from all trips taken July 3 to the Friends of the Plainfield Park District Foundation. The incredible generosity amounted to a $4,300 donation.
“We are so thankful to Scott and Kris Most and the Plainfield River Tubing Company for their incredible generosity,” said Emily Brooks, president of the Friends of the Plainfield Park District Foundation. “They are committed to providing fun, recreational opportunities on the river, and we completely support that.”
The Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life in the Plainfield area by assisting in the preservation of open space and enhancing recreation facilities and programs in the Plainfield Park District for people of all ages to enjoy. Its purpose is to:
- Encourage the acquisition, development and preservation of park land in and around Plainfield
- Appeal to donors and assist in raising funds and receiving property
- Implement new and innovative projects
- Assist private citizens, civic clubs, community organizations, and industry in their giving
- Avoid duplication of function or activity successfully conducted by other organizations
Scott and Kris Most, Plainfield residents for more than a decade, opened Plainfield River Tubing during the pandemic as a way to not only make it easier to float on the DuPage River but also to offer people a way to enjoy nature while socially distant. Along with offering tube and paddle rentals, floaters are driven to the start point for their roughly 2.5-hour float down the river. Once at the end, floaters end up back where their cars are parked.
