Kayak & Stand-up Paddle Board Race
The 2019 event will be held at Leonardtown Wharf in Leonardtown, Maryland on Saturday, June 8, 2019 (rain date Saturday, June 22, 2019). The focus of the event is to not only raise scholarship funds for First Responders and their families but also to offer military personnel funds to attend the Warfighter Advance™ 7-Day Post-combat Reintegration Program.
Forty percent of the proceeds will finance Rotary Club of Leonardtown charities and public service projects; thirty percent will be donated to the College of Southern Maryland scholarship fund for First Responders; and thirty percent will go to the Warfighter Advance program™.
The race will take place on Breton Bay, starting and ending at the Leonardtown Wharf. After registering racers are encouraged to raise funds for the event by soliciting pledges from their friends and family using their favorite social media platform. Every dollar raised through pledges will lower the racer’s time by 1 second.
There will be awards for the top Kayak and SUP male and female racers and trophies for the top three racers with the best adjusted time. Adjusted time is based on a racer’s peer-to-peer fundraising deduction. One second is deducted from their raw time for each dollar raised.
