Come paddle with us to help make a difference in the lives of others. On July 9th at the Clear Creek Whitewater park in Golden, CO, First Descents - A kayak camp for young adults with cancer is holding the 1st annual Paddle-A-Thon. Registration begins at 8am.
Paddle-A-Thon participants will solicit pledges for each lap paddled in the park or a flat fee donation for participation. At the end of the day laps will be tabulated and all the money raised will help more young people participate in the First Descents camps. Prizes will be awarded. -Click here to download pledge form
The Paddle-A-Thon will not be limited to kayakers either. We would like to encourage anyone with a craft that will float down the creek and the proper safety equipment to join us.
