Join us on Saturday October 6, 2018 for the White Cloud Foundation Paddle to Battle Depression. This fun-filled paddle starts at Kookaburra Park at Karana Downs at 8am and finishes around 4pm at Fig Tree Pocket River Reserve.
There’s something for everyone on our charity paddle. You can choose to participate as an individual or in a team, you can paddle the course duration of 35kms or just join the group for the last leg and do 6kms. You can paddle any suitable craft that is over 12’ 6”.
The event brings together the community to raise awareness of mental health and much needed funds to support White Cloud Foundation services that helps those at risk of or experiencing PTSD or PND.
All members of the community are welcome from the professional athletes through to first timer paddlers. We’ll paddle together and help each other out and we won’t leave anyone up the creek without a paddle!
You are welcome to participate in a single or double watercraft.
There are four battle distances to suit all level of paddlers.
