The Seneca County House of Concern is in the final stages of preparing for their inaugural Canal Crawl Paddling Poverty to be held on Saturday, August 20, 2016. The non-profit organization is excited to bring together their family of supporters and new friends for this fun-filled event. Like a walk-a-thon paddlers have been encouraged to raise money for their entry fee by collecting donations through pledges.
Participants will be checking in at Oak Island at 9:00 am on the 20th and then paddling kayaks and canoes in an easy paddle down the Cayuga/Seneca Canal from Waterloo to the Seneca Falls Community Center. Along the way the paddlers will be treated to live music, snacks and a challenging and entertaining scavenger hunt. There will be items (natural landmarks and placed items) along the canal with numbers that will need to be matched to corresponding clues. When disembarking at the Seneca Falls Community Center there will be lunch, more live music and prizes will be awarded to the top fundraiser and scavenger hunt winner.
