Reef Rescue Annual Kayak-a-thon Fund Raiser

The date is set for the 5th annual Kayak-a-thon fundraiser. On May 1, 2010 kayakers will paddle their way along a 15 mile course in the Lake Worth Lagoon from the Earman River in North Palm Beach to Peanut Island and back to gather for a celebration.

This annual event has become one of the most important fundraising activities of the year for Reef Rescue. Not only does the Kayak-a-thon help raise funds to support Reef Rescue coral reef conservation projects, but it also brings together our family of supporters for a fun filled day of outdoor activity.

Like a walk-a-thon, kayakers raise money by collecting donations or pledges for completing the predetermined course. It is similar in format to other physical activity based fundraising events such as marathons and cycling races, but this low intensity, non-competitive event is ideal for mobilizing broad-based community support.

There are several ways to get involved:
 1. as an individual kayaker
 2. as a team
 3. have your club, organization or business sponsor a kayaker
 4. have your club, organization or business become an event sponsor

If you are unable to be at the event you still can help by making your pledge at: www.kayakathon.com
