Paddle for a Cure
Paddle for a Cure
benefiting the Support Connection of Yorktown
sponsored by
The Hudson River
Watertrail Association
Saturday, September 10th, 2016

Join us for a fun-filled day of paddling on the Hudson River while raising money for a great cause. Following the same course as last year,  the 9-mile current-assisted course follows the river down a beautiful stretch from 'Long Dock' in Beacon, past historic Bannerman's Island, to finish at Dockside Park in Cold Spring.

Participants will pick up playing cards at specific points along the way, hoping to produce the best 'poker' hand, and win a fabulous prize.  After the paddle, celebrate a fun and rewarding day on the water with music, picnic lunch, beer and a raffle for all sorts of prizes.

Net proceeds from the paddle and raffle will benefit the Support Connection of Yorktown, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization established in 1996 that offers free, confidential support services to people affected by breast and ovarian cancer.  More information on their services and programs can be found at http://supportconnection.org/.

A $65 entry fee (just $50 if you register before July 15th!), ACA insurance for the event, train shuttle ticket, picnic lunch, a raffle ticket plus a great event giveaway. A guaranteed minimum donation of $30 per entry and all raffle proceeds go to the Support Connection.
EVENT DAY SIGNUP IS $ 75.00, so please signup beforehand.

Kayaks, canoes, SUPs, rowboats, rank beginners, seasoned boaters and teams of friends and co-workers are encouraged to join us.
