Over $32,000 raised in 2018 CKBC Paddle-A-Thon

July 9, 2018


Three CKBC clubs raised $32,343.15 for much needed equipment and programs during the 2018 Canoe Kayak BC Paddle-A-Thon. Each club hosted a paddle-a-thon event in their community in conjunction with paddlers collecting donations. And through the National Sport Trust Fund, donations over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt.

In addition to raising money for their clubs, the paddlers also had the opportunity  to win prizes. False Creek’s Logan & Senika Velisek, who were the top fundraiser, receive $350 towards a new paddle.

Top fundraisers 

  • Logan & Senika Velisek (False Creek): $2,520.00
  • Damian and Corben Hickey (Kamloops): $2,425.00
  • Quinn Thomson (False Creek): $2,140.00

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.
