Paddle Georgia 2020 Pandemic Edition (Ongoing until August 5th!)
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Georgia River Network’s Paddle Georgia 2020 event on the Flint River originally scheduled for June 20-27 has been cancelled. In its place, we’re hosting Paddle Georgia 2020-Pandemic Edition, an effort to collectively log 4,000 river miles and raise $40,000 for river protection this summer.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: While we cannot gather as a large group this summer, Georgia’s rivers are still open and they can be safely explored in small groups. Register for Paddle Georgia 2020 Pandemic Edition; create your own one-day or multi-day paddle trip; document your trip with photos and or video and share it with Georgia River Network via e-mail or social media. When sharing via social media, use the hashtag: #PaddleGeorgiaPandemic.
PADDLE GEORGIA CANOE-A-THON: If you are willing (and we hope you will be willing) please solicit donations from friends, family members and business associates through our Canoe-a-thon as you are planning your “pandemic trip.” Tell them you are paddling to protect Georgia rivers and ask them to make a contribution equal to the number of miles you are paddling. For instance, 10 miles might equal $10…or $100 or even $1000!
