Paddle for Plummer 2018 Photo

The Story

EVENT DATE: Jul 07, 2018


The Story:


At Plummer Youth Promise we believe that what the most vulnerable young people in our community really need is something most of us take for granted — the stability and support of a family. That belief drives everything we do. Our Promise is bold. We work tirelessly to connect each of these kids with a family that will be with them forever.


The Event:


Join us at our award-wining 5th Annual Paddle for Plummer! Paddle for Plummer is our largest annual fundraiser. When you paddle, you’re helping local kids find forever families. The more you raise, the more kids we can help.


This year, we also have fantastic incentive prizes for all our paddlers! The more you raise, the more awesome prizes you get!
