Kayak & Paddle Board Races in Maryland
Join us on June 10, 2017 for the first annual Paddle for Heroes kayak, canoe, and paddle board races! We hold this annual event to raise funds for scholarship programs that will benefit our St. Mary’s County First Responders, their families, and the Rotary Club’s endeavors. This exciting event will be held at the Leonardtown Wharf on Breton Bay and McIntosh Run and will consist of timed kayak and paddle board races on Breton Bay and a paddle for fun race commencing on McIntosh Run with food and entertainment at the Leonardtown Wharf at the conclusion of the races.
Kayak and Paddle Board Races
These races will take place on Breton Bay, starting and ending at the Leonardtown Wharf. After racers register they will have an opportunity to create a peer to peer fundraising page. Every dollar raised through pledges will lower the racers time by 1 second.
Awards – There will be an awards ceremony and free lunch for race participants at the conclusion of the race. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will be award to the men & women in three age groups with the fastest race times.
Trophy – A trophy will be awarded to the participant with the fastest RESPONDER time which is the racer with the lowest combined time of race time and seconds of earned for each $1.00 donation credited to them.
Paddle For Fun Race
This leisure paddle will start on Macintosh Run at the Port of Leonardtown Winery and end at the Leonardtown Wharf. After Paddlers register for the event they will have an opportunity to create a peer to peer fundraising page requesting pledges.
