Heroes 2 Oregon Paddle Challenge

About This Activity

Be a hero to one of 13 local Wounded Heroes, helping them to regain an active lifestyle by sending them to the National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic this September.

Teams of 10 paddlers paddling a 29' Voyageur style canoe on a short prescribed course (400-500 yards), racing against the clock and other teams. This will put the FUN in fundraising. This is also a great opportunity for team-building while fundraising for a great cause!

The Race: 9 members of a team will be seated in the big canoe and the 10th will be on land in a chair. Once the start signal sounds the team member on land will run and jump in the canoe, which will spring out around a marker in the lake and return. Upon returning to shore a team member will exit the canoe, run a short distance and ring a gong, thus ending the time. Each team will have two runs.

Registration: The team captain will need to organize and register each team member. Registration DOES require all team members to be signed up at once.
