Waterlife are back on Lake Kawana this weekend, with their sights set to raise over $30,000 for charity!
With close to 50 teams-of-five competing this year, the lake will host a slew of corporate groups representing their business while supporting charity for a full day out of outrigger canoeing, paddling. Registrations are still open and Waterlife welcome any last minute teams who would like to unleash their competitive edge for a cause. And, if that doesn't make you want to jump in the water, know that each registrant goes into the draw to win a return trip to Hawaii for two!
The three charities that are being directly supported through this years event are:
Wishlist – the Sunshine Coast’s local hospital foundation that directs more than $1million every year towards medical equipment, the support of services and local research projects.
Wishlist will be funding $25,000 worth of equipment for the first Exercise Physiology service for cancer patients in the state!
End ED – At present, Waterlife is the lifeblood of endED. Funds raised gives endED funds to launch awareness campaigns about the vital services endED has to offer and about eating disorders in general. Ultimately, Waterlife will fast-track endED’s progress and improve the lives and offer hope and guidance to the parents and carers of people with an eating disorder.
No Limits Adaptive Paddling - The No Limits Adaptive Paddling not for profit organisation is leading a ground-breaking movement in Australia that is changing the lives of people with physical disabilities. Waterlife funds will be spent on essential adaptive equipment, coaching and education programs, plus travel grants for paddlers competing interstate or internationally.
If competing isn't your slice, why not come down to watch the spectacle, grab a snag from the BBQ and a jump on the jumping castle! The bar will be open from 11am and multiple prizes can be won, with every raffle ticket sold on the day contributing to raising much needed funds for each cause.
