Canoe for Cancer

  • 08/28/2021
  • 8:30 AM - 2:00 PM
  • GPCA Community Hall

21 years ago, GPCA organized the first Canoe for Cancer.  There are some members who have faithfully canoed every year!  Many more are involved as paddlers, and volunteers.   Last year, due to Covid-19, we were unable to put on this event, and I am sure that the Cancer Society  missed our participation. 

Put this event on your calendar and follow our posts for more details. Let's have everybody join us in some way!

Please join us as we paddle Gloucester Pool and Little Lake starting from the Big Chute Marine Railway to Port Severn Park, Port Severn. There will be a stop along the way to pick up snacks and water. Saftey boats wil be along the route to help provide assistance as needed by paddlers. 

Let's have fun and help cure cancer!
