A new Kidsport-related event is on the horizon.
The local children’s charity organization is currently in the early stages of putting together the first Kayak for Kidsport, set to take place Sunday, July 14 at the Kiwanis Pavillion and Boat Launch.
The event is aimed at exposing as many people as possible to the sports of canoeing and kayaking, all with the aim of getting exercise, having fun on the water and supporting the local KidSport committee at the same time.
A free breakfast will be held for all registered participants, with prizes to be won just for taking part and a corporate challenge event also planned. Registration fees are expected to be in the $20 range, with all proceeds going back to Kidsport.
All levels of skill are welcome, with a safety and correct paddling technique demonstration taking place before the event. The committee will have a wide selection of canoes and kayaks available for low to no cost.
All proceeds from Kayak for Kidsport will go to the local organization.
