Paddle for the Cure
Paddle for the Cure is a friendly dragon boat competition benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure Central and Western Oklahoma Affiliate. More than 300 athletes participated in the first Paddle for the Cure during the 2012 Oklahoma Regatta Festival, and we’re ready to welcome even more when Paddle for the Cure returns to the Oklahoma River in October 2014!
The competition will feature teams of 20 paddlers and one drummer racing down the Oklahoma River. Each team will get two, 60-minute practice sessions before racing under the lights at the OGE NightSprints during the Oklahoma Regatta Festival.
Interested in participating? Form a team online and contact Susan G. Komen of Central and Western Oklahoma at (405) 526-2873 ext 203. Cost is $650 per team. Participants will receive a race t-shirt. Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers.
