Five CKBC clubs raised $27,630.19 for much needed equipment and programs during the 2017 Canoe Kayak BC Paddle-A-Thon. Each club hosted a paddle-a-thon event in their community in conjunction with paddlers collecting donations.

2017 Participating Clubs:

  • Burnaby Canoe and Kayak Club: $2,475
  • False Creek Sprint Canoe Club: $15,889.19
  • Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club: $5,772
  • Nelson Kayak and Canoe Club: $1,435
  • Yukon Flatwater Paddling: $1,689

In addition to raising money for their clubs, the paddlers also had the opportunity  to win prizes. False Creek’s Tiffany Yau, who was the top fundraiser, receives $350 towards a new paddle. And every paddler who raised at least $150 receives a special CKBC t-shirt commemorating Canada’s 150th birthday.
