The Paddle-A-Thon is our biggest and most fun fundraiser. This year it’s all new! Start collecting donations to join a scenic day on the river. The relaxed 9 mi. paddle starts and ends at the beautiful Childress Vineyards where there will be food, beverages, music and fun for the whole family. Money raised through Paddle-A-Thon supports the clean water efforts of Yadkin Riverkeeper to keep the river fishable, swimmable and drinkable. You are encouraged to raise a minimum of $50 and get a custom-designed buff and an all-access pass to the post-paddle party! Raise even more money to qualify to win a new bike, outdoor gear, trips and more.
