Paddle-A-Thon

This Thursday, August 1st, from 5 pm to 7 pm, we'll have our annual Paddle-A-Thon. 

The Annual Rideau Canoe Club Paddle-A-Thon will see all club members paddle as many 200 meters sprints on canoes and kayaks as possible on August 1 from 5 PM to 7 PM while raising money for RCC programs. The minimum donation to participate is $20. Registration starts at 4:30 pm.

There will be prizes awarded at the end of the Paddle-A-Thon to the top fundraiser, the athlete that paddles the most 200 meters sprints and the athlete that paddles the fastest 200 meters sprint.
