KAYAK FOR THE HEART OF IT
Posted by: KayakForTheHeartOfIt on Jun-27-12 9:21 AM (EST)
The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (Timmins Area Office) cordially invites you and your 3-person kayak team, participate once again in the KAYAK FOR THE HEART OF IT! fundraising event on Sunday August 26th, 2012 in Timmins, Ontario.
Our inaugural event in 2011 was a highlight of the Great Canadian Kayak Challenge and Festival and brought together teams from diverse backgrounds and locations. 15 teams competed with a heart-healthy spirit to raise not only funds, but awareness of heart and stroke issues. The Heart and Stroke Foundation is hoping we can count on you to continue this incredible experience in Timmins and help us “Make Death Wait” by putting your paddles in the water this summer.
Anticipating a greater turnout in the competition ring, we have now split the day into two main divisions. This allows for the extreme experienced kayakers to paddle against those teams who compete at the same level, and the Amateur Hearts division opens the sport to newer and less experienced teams. The prizing and awards has also changed.
To keep the competitive teams on the edge of their kayaks, the Experienced Hearts division will be vying for cash prizes and the trophy. There will be certificates awarded for Team Spirit, as well as Best Effort. Those teams entering this category will have had experience competing as kayakers in the past and aren’t afraid of “a little competition!”
To encourage the Amateur Hearts who are in it for the healthy exercise and to raise awareness for Heart and Stroke issues, we are offering this division of the event as a Fit for Heart pledge based event. Minimum to be raised in order to participate is $50 per participant through achieving donations using their pledge envelopes. Not only will the Amateur Hearts division be vying for the best time overall trophy, the individual participant can earn prizes according to the amount of donations raised on their pledge envelopes! There will be certificates awarded for Team Spirit, as well as Best Effort. One of the exciting options when entering as an “Amateur Heart Team” is that you can also fundraise online! Any amount raised online will count towards your team’s overall effort, and your own prizing level!
