Five CKBC clubs raised $27,630.19 for much needed equipment and programs during the 2017 Canoe Kayak BC Paddle-A-Thon. Each club hosted a paddle-a-thon event in their community in conjunction with paddlers collecting donations.
In addition to raising money for their clubs, the paddlers also had the opportunity to win prizes. False Creek's Tiffany Yau, who was the top fundraiser, receives $350 towards a new paddle. And every paddler who raised at least $150 receives a special CKBC t-shirt commemorating Canada's 150th birthday.
Thanks to everyone who helped our paddlers reach their goals by donating. Your donation made a difference for our clubs as they improve their equipment and programming.
