On Saturday August 10 more than three hundred swimmers and stand up paddlers completed a race of 4 kilometers along the Ottawa River. This unique swimming event is an annual fundraiser that raises awareness and much-needed funds to help protect the Ottawa River.
Sup Adventures is proud to announce that we were an official donator at the event. And our Silver Shark paddle boards were also present on the water. Clean water in the Ottawa River is a cause that is of high importance to us. Especially because we run paddle board tours in this water!
On the morning of the event it was quite windy and not too sunny. But all participants showed outstanding effort. The youngest swimmer was 9 years of age and the oldest 72! An amazing amount of $40,000 has been raised that day to protect the water of the Ottawa River.
Thank you to all the participants and for The Ottawa Riverkeeper to have Sup Adventures as a donator.
