Paddling to raise awareness and funds

MAKE a difference in someone's life by raising awareness and funds for seriously ill children by attending the Swish for a Wish charity event at Red Rock.

The event raises money to help the Make-A-Wish Foundation grant life changing wishes to seriously ill children.

Originally organised to support 14-year-old Riley Saban who has a condition called Spastic Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy, this year will mark the event's third year.

 

Bring the family and stand up paddle board, kayak, canoe or anything else you have to join in the paddle to Jew Fish Point at Corindi River.

The first 10 people to ring will be able to borrow a SUP or kayak for the event.

Paddlers will be greeted by a sausage sizzle on their return and enjoy organised sports.

The day will start at the barbecue area near the Boat Ramp in Red Rock at 8.30am ready for a 9am paddle on Sunday, February 19.

Cost is a $20 donation to Make-A-Wish Foundation.
