Last year, the local 2013 Kayak For A Cure event raised $2342.50. All funds raised through Kayak for a Cure™ Columbus are donated to Nationwide Children’s Center for Childhood Cancer whose mission is to expand the understanding of the pathogenesis of childhood cancer and to improve strategies for diagnosis and treatment. You can join our fight against cancer by kayaking for a cure.
Hope Floats… join us today!
We will launch at Genoa Park and paddle north of Confluence Park then return to Genoa Park. The paddle will take approximately 2 hours depending on water levels further upstream.

ABOUT KAYAK FOR A CURE
Kayak for a Cure™ was launched in 2006 by a group of twenty-somethings in Vancouver, BC, from an idea that started right here in DAYTON. Our group was eager to start something special – something scalable and fun while providing legitimate funding to Cancer Societies and research facilities, respectively. Something that could build community, provide an amazing one-day kayaking experience and raise money for cancer research and prevention. Kayak for a Cure™ is a volunteer-run organization and gives 100% of their proceeds to charities close to their hearts. Each summer, in cities around the United States and Canada, paddlers – both beginners and experienced – climb in to kayaks (and canoes) and paddle on waterways, bays, lakes, rivers and channels for two reasons: an excuse to have a great day in the outdoors with some amazing people, and to be part of the solution: fund the research that leads to cures for all types of cancers.
