Coastal Kayak Announces Fundraisers for Summer 2016
Fenwick Island, DE: Coastal Kayak of Fenwick Island, DE has planned three fundraisers for local charities for summer 2016.
The public is invited to “Paddle with your Pooch” on Saturday, April 30, 12-3 pm in support of the Worcester County Humane Society. Coastal Kayak’s American Canoe Association (ACA) certified stand up paddleboard and kayak instructors will be on hand to give tips – no paddling experience is necessary! This will be the perfect opportunity to try both paddleboarding and kayaking, and to treat your pet to a day on the beautiful Little Assawoman Bay. All are welcome, with or without a pet, to help Worcester County Humane Society pets get a new “leash” on life!
The Worcester County Humane Society is a no-kill shelter, and is located in Berlin, Maryland. It relies primarily on donations to fund their mission to find loving families for stray and abandoned animals.
All pets must be on leash. Adult and child lifejackets will be provided, however, please bring your own canine PFD if necessary. No reservations are required and donations will be accepted in lieu of a rental fee.
On Sunday afternoon, May 22, Coastal Kayak will hold their 15th Annual Paddle for a Cure benefitting Delaware’s Cancer Support Community. The Cancer Support Community is a state-wide organization whose mission is to “ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community”. To learn more about the mission, please visit www.cancersupportdelaware.org
This year’s paddle will be for intermediate paddlers. Sorry – no first-timers or kids under the age of 13. It will be a short paddle with a big pay-off! We will explore the Ocean City commercial harbor, paddle along the north end of Assateague Island, and land our kayaks to enjoy an incredible view! Donations to the Delaware Cancer Support Community will be collected in lieu of registration fee. Space is limited and registration is required. Paddling experience is a must, but Coastal Kayak will supply kayaks at no charge.
On Sunday evening, June 19, Coastal Kayak will offer a special Salt Marsh Sunset/Moonrise Tour to benefit the Delaware Audubon Society. The Delaware Audubon Society is dedicated to developing a better appreciation of our natural resources and working for species and habitat conservation. For more information, visit: www.delawareaudubon.org
Participants, with expert guides, will enjoy a twilight paddle through the salt marshes of the Rehoboth Bay, hoping to see osprey, blue heron, and oyster catchers, as well as the annual spawning rituals of the horseshoe crabs so vital to our coastal eco-system. Space is limited and advanced reservations are required.
In the last 5 years, Coastal Kayak has donated thousands of dollars to organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Delaware Wild Lands, Horseshoe Crab Conservation Fund (ERDG), Justin’s Beach House, Marine Education, Research and Rehabilitation Institute, Inc. (MERR), Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation (QRCF), Rebecca Adams Green Foundation , SMAC! Sock Monkeys Against Cancer, Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research, Inc., and Worcester County Humane Society.
