The second annual Paddle for a Cure is sponsored by the Hudson River Watertrail Association
Join us for a great day of paddling on the Hudson River while raising money for an excellent cause. Building on last years successful ‘poker- paddle’ fundraiser, we will follow the same 11 mile course down this beautiful stretch of the Hudson River from Cold Spring to Peekskill.
Participants will pick up playing cards at specific points along the way, hoping to produce the best ‘poker’ hand. The winning hand at the finish gets a fabulous prize. After the paddle, celebrate a fun and rewarding day on the water with a picnic, beer, great raffles and prizes. “
So, what’s the cause ? “ you might ask. Net proceeds from the paddle, raffle and silent auction will benefit the Dr. Susan Love Breast Cancer Research Foundation (www.dslrf.org).
Your $45 entry fee gets you ACA insurance for the event, breakfast, sports-wicking t-shirt, picnic, and a raffle ticket. A guaranteed donation of $25 per entry is made to the Cause. If you need to rent a boat we can help arrange that for you. Also, a free shuttle will ensure that you and your boat are together at the same place at the end of the day.
Kayaks, canoes, SUPs, rank beginners, seasoned paddlers and teams of friends and co-workers are encouraged to join us.
Sponsors and prizes / raffles /auction items will be posted at hrwa.org.
