American Fire is dedicated to helping people find, pursue, and live their dreams. The non-profit is currently working to fund two young American women to participate in the 2007 Woodvale Events Atlantic Rowing Race, in which they will be youngest women to row across the Atlantic Ocean from the Canary Islands to Antigua. Sarah Kessans and Emily Kohl attempted this race in December 2005 before they capsized mid-Atlantic after 46 days. They were rescued after 16 hours of clinging to their upturned hull by the USCG and the tall ship Stavros Niarchos. They lived to tell the tale, and are more determined than ever to finish what they started to inspire people to pursue their own dreams. Both Sarah and Emily have given numerous inspirational presentations to schools, youth groups, and clubs continue to spread the message that with hard work, determination, and teamwork, all dreams can come true. American Fire coordinates the logistical and educational aspects of the adventure.
