Sweetwater Paddle for the Cure

Russell is a friend of mine and I wanted to share a special event that he is apart of.  I hope to see all of my paddling friends participate in this event. —Jeff

Welcome to a first of its kind event in Tampa Bay. On Saturday April 25, 2009 set against the skyline of beautiful downtown Tampa, will be a kayak and paddle craft race and family fun paddle to raise money for cancer research.

Launching from scenic Riverfront Park in downtown Tampa on the Hillsborough River there will be two events. The first is a 5 mile race from Riverfront Park down river into Seddon Channel to Marjorie Park at Davis Islands and back with an extension into Ybor Channel and past Tampa General Hospital. The second race is a 2 mile family fun paddle from Riverfront Park to the Convention Center and back.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.

We encourage everyone to register for the race and to seek sponsorships from friends, family and coworkers. No prior paddling experience is needed and rental boats will be available for those without a kayak. Come out, have fun and help Beat Cancer With A Paddle!
