If you dont have reason enough to quit your job during paddle season here it is, the EddyFlower Vertical Challenge which benefits First Descents, a nationwide whitewater kayaking program for young adults with cancer. The Competition is intense: you and your paddling buddies paddle as many runs as you can endure from May 15 June 15. At the end of the 30 days, the team with the most vertical feet is crowned champion.
EddyFlower and First Descents have partnered together to raise the funds needed to provide a whitewater kayaking experience to a group of very worthy paddlers. What better reason to paddle for 30 days straight when every stroke you take raises money for young adults with cancer! Sign up and share the love!
Open to all paddlers from all states of all skill levels. Compete for prizes in divisions (Open, Class IV, and Class III) that best match your team's skills. Keep in mind, all runs must have a write-up on eddyflower and must have a put-in and take-out elevation to be eligible.
Prizes include Dagger boat, WRSI helmets, Tech4O watches, KEEN footwear, Voz Sports shaders, Paddling Life schwag and Funnel videos. Special thanks to Alpenglow Colorado for picking up a big chunk of the event costs.
The Awards party will be held at The Spot in Golden Thursday June 21.
