  • Burns Park boat ramp.. starting point
The 8th Annual Paddle for the Cure, a fun paddle for kayaks and canoes, will take place on Sat., Oct 16th. The PFTC group will launch at 7:00 AM from the Burns Park boat ramp in order to arrive at the Broadway Bridge at approx 8 AM as the runners start the Race For The Cure. Then we bob around under the bridges cheering on the runners above. Take-out is at the I-30 boat ramp (just down-stream) or paddle back... whew!

At the take-out ramp, the Arkansas Boathouse Club will be hosting a Brunch/Open House for Paddlers, Racers, Coast-Guard, Sheriff's Patrol & all our various friends and supporters, as the ABC has done the last several years. Plan to stop by... You'll be welcome! And, you need not be an experienced paddler to participate in the Brunch... (PM Crane for info)

This Paddle for the Cure is a "rogue event", non-sanctioned by Susan G. Komen because we are on the water. Pam encourages everyone to donate by registering as if you were participating in the Race for the Cure at http://www.komenarkansas.org, tape your number to your boat and wear your t-shirt, but paddle with us instead of walking or running!! Dress crazy, wear pink, paint your boat pink, espress yourself! This is for men and women who are experienced paddlers.

NOTE: Experienced paddlers only, at your own risk.
Bring your own boat and PFD! PFDs must be worn at all times! 

Need volunteers to shuttle! See you on the Arkansas River!
