Canoe For Cancer 2023

22 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.   

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. Safety boats will be along the route to help provide assistance as needed by paddlers. 

Let's have fun and help cure cancer!
