2023 Paddle for the Kids
42nd Paddle for the Kids
Members and friends, grab your paddles and join the Victoria Canoe and Kayak Club for the 42nd Annual Paddle For The Kids! This event is a unique fundraiser benefitting children and adults with disabilities who attend Easter Seals Summer Camp at Shawnigan Lake.
This year, Paddle For The Kids will be virtual and in-person! Paddlers will have their choice of paddling in-person, or tracking their individual paddling, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, running, walking and other types of fitness they choose, all while fundraising for children and adults with disabilities.
For 42 years, members of VCKC have paddled the 75km journey, originally - in 1982 - it was one team from Victoria to Port Angeles and a second team back; more recently from Brentwood Bay to our clubhouse on the Gorge.
VCKC members have raised over $395,000 for Easter Seals Summer Camps in BC. Click here to make your contribution to this enormously worthwhile and rewarding and FUN project.
