Paddle your way through the waters of Oak Bay as you fundraise for a good cause next weekend!

On Saturday, September 8th, spend your day off relaxing in the ocean and soaking up the sun, while also raising money to help cancer patients and their families living on Vancouver Island.

Paddle for Health is a team of volunteers that organizes paddling sport events to aid and fundraise for local families that have been affected by cancer.

This annual event will take you paddling past Cattle Point into Cadboro Bay to Gyro Beach. There, you’ll stop for a quick stretch and a snack, and then head back over to Willows beach for a BBQ lunch.

Participants can register for $50 plus an additional fundraising pledge. All donations go to the Island Kids Cancer Association.

The event aims to raise $25,000 and as of the time of publication, they’re at the $9,500 mark.
