2022 Paddle for the Kids
41th Anniversary PPFTK is a GO!
Yes VCKC, we will be back on the water for 2022! It's been another challenging year, but we are a resilient bunch, and so are the kids & families we support at Easter Seals. Thanks to the generous support of our members' sponsors, the club typically donates more than $20,000 annually to help the Lions Society in providing opportunities for children with disabilities.
This year's 2022 Paddle for the Kids will be a hybrid event of paddling together for those who are comfortable being back on the water, but also a virtual event for those who aren't ready to paddle, to track our combined individual outdoor activities - paddling, walking, running, hiking, cycling (what else are you doing to stay active?!). We will each fundraise as usual, and set a personal activity "distance" goal to complete by the end of the event. As a nod to our event's historical roots, we are encouraging everyone to attempt to complete 45km of activity distance - the equivalent of a 1-way paddle to Port Angeles!
BC Lion's Society Easter Seals is working on this year's website that will allow each of us to sign up for our event and track both our group and individual progress throughout the event. Stay tuned! Perhaps you will paddle 3km one day, then hike 5km another day? You'll be well on your way to Port Angeles with 8km completed!
