The third Kayak Challenge, a fund raising event for the Abaco Cancer Society and Friends of the Environment, was a great financial success with double the business sponsorship over last year. Helen Jacobs was the lucky winner (considering every raffle ticket had been sold) of the grand raffle prize, a Hobe kayak donated by Lightbourn Marine.
The second annual Kayak Challenge, which was held on November 3 and started at Pete’s Pub in Little Harbour, was a very successful event bringing together a large group of people in support of the Abaco Cancer Society and Friends of the Environment (FRIENDS). A total of 44 kayakers and 17 paddle borders entered to paddle for this very worthy cause. In addition to the entry fee each person was asked to raise at least $100 in sponsorship and all proceeds were split between the Abaco Cancer Society and Friends of the Environment.
