For the organizers of this event, it’s a way to pay tribute to someone they loved who lost her battle with breast cancer.
“We started Paddle of the Battle in 2009 when my mother-in-law, Connie, passed away,” said Sybil Barbini, “She loved nature… I like to remember her when she was happy, healthy and enjoying nature.”
Sybil encourages you to gather your friends for this fun and exciting event while helping Susan G. Komen Columbus raise money to support local breast health programs and national research. The canoe race starts at noon and entry is $25 person, with 100% of proceeds supporting Komen Columbus.
Your $25 registration also puts you in the running to win a raffle prize valued at $1,100!
The grand prize is a two-night stay and dinner for two at Glen Laurel, a “luxurious Hocking Hills Scottish County Inn”, two passes for a zip-line canopy tour and miniature golf, go-karts for two and a 3-hour canoe ride through the Original Hocking Hills Adventures in Logan.
The raffle winner will be picked at a cook-out they will have after the canoe race. A prize will also be awarded to the top finisher of the canoe race.
We hope to see you on September 13th.
