Paddle for A Cure
The Sixth annual Paddle for a Cure benefitting the
Support Connection of Yorktown
sponsored by The Hudson River Watertrail Association
A 9-mile Poker Paddle Fundraiser for The Support Connection of Yorktown
Saturday, September 10th, 2016
Despite the threat of thunderstorms, nearly 100 people came out on September 10th to Long Dock in Beacon, NY for The Hudson River Watertrail Association’s 6th Annual Paddle for a Cure. Paddlers in all variety of Kayaks and on standup paddle boards joined us for the 9 mile paddle down the scenic Hudson River, past Dennings Point, Bannerman’s Island, Breakneck Ridge, and Little Stoney Point collecting playing cards along the way for the poker paddle fundraiser benefitting the Support Connection.
After the paddle, everyone gathered at Dockside in Cold Spring to meet up with old friends, make some new ones, and to eat, drink, and enjoy the music of the Regulators while anticipating the awarding of prizes and 2 great raffles. A truly enjoyable day was had by all.
