200 people, all in pink, on the water!
It is okay if you are a beginner, the day is about fun and recreation with funds raised going to Cancer Council SA as a part of their Girls Night In program.
1 in 3 Australian women will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Each year in Australia more than 45,000 women are diagnosed with cancer.
Every contribution to Girls Day Out event makes a difference to these women as Cancer Council is able to fund research into improved prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
Many Australian women today have such busy lives juggling work, family and various social and community commitments. Finding time to be active and face to face time with close friends has become a rare treat.
Hannah Davis, Olympic medallist in kayaking is the ambassador for Girls Day Out said “it is a great opportunity to get the girls together, experience paddling, be active and raise funds and awareness for women’s cancers.”
The paddle will start at West Lakes Canoe Club, Aquatic Reserve, Bower Road, West Lakes. Equipment is provided (life jacket, boat, paddles) however participants are welcome to use their own equipment.
The track will be a leisurely paddle around Delfin Island (approx. 6km.)
Registration is $20 and you can register online at www.recreationsa.org.
