Ollie Cam Live Stream
Ollie will broadcast live on the "Ollie Cam" starting in Pittsburgh August 13th while he’s on the river and during stops for "pawtographs", photos and "Meat and Greets". We need volunteers to operate the "Ollie Cam" and drones for cool aerial shots.
Safety First Always! After 50 years on the river, Michael is very experienced, but we are looking for boat and Jet Ski clubs to be chase crew for parts of, or even our whole trip! A fun way to get involved and make it safer.
Children’s Book Illustrator and Caricature Artist
We are writing a children's book: “Ollie’s River Adventure”. The book will teach kids 7 valuable life lessons that Ollie will learn:
1) Safety First. Always! He has GPS, 2 phones and safety gear.
2) Set Goals in Life. (Ollie's is 500 miles, Pittsburgh to Cincinnati).
3) We All Encounter Obstacles in Life. (He will go through 12 dams).
4) Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall. (Rain Delays).
5) Life Can be a Bumpy Ride. (He’ll face some bumpy waves).
6) Teamwork (Ollie, his mom, dad and volunteers will work together as a team).
7) Never Give Up! (A 4-5 day trip, for weather delays and dams. He keeps going!)
Schools, Scout Groups, Kids’ Sports Teams, etc
Ollie wants to meet lots of people! He will sign “pawtographs” and pose for pictures at towns and marinas along the way. His schedule will be on this site, The Ollie Cam and social media as we get closer, and updated with changes due to weather, etc.
Help Ollie Set a Bunch of Guinness World Records!
Most First Pitches by a Dog, Most people to feed a dog in one day. His stops will be “Meat and Greets” where each person, especially kids, gets a piece of his kibble to feed Ollie. If hundreds of people feed Ollie, it will be a world record and a fun way for everyone, especially the kids, to feel involved in Ollie’s trip.
To volunteer just call us at 727-744-5606 or send an email. Thanks!
