UCCCC RAG Week Charity Paddle
This RAG week, UCCCC decided to attempt to paddle a distance of 50km in a relay format between our members in order to raise money for this year’s RAG charities.
The event took place between 10am and 2pm on the river Lee on Monday 11th of February. We asked for a minimum donation of 2euro in order to take part but we also set up a gofundme in order to collect donations from the wider community. Non paddlers were also welcome to come and spectate or donate.
We had some great sponsors for the event including The River Lee Hotel, The Outdoor Adventure Store, Joes & Bros, Swoon, Bantry Bay Canoes, Nandos, Amigos and boojum. Anyone who donated was entered into a raffle for some fab prizes.
To say we exceeded our target is an understatement! We had over 35 paddlers on the water and as a club we paddled 140km for our charity paddle. We raised a total of €1304.37 for the RAG Week Charities: Jigsaw Cork, Homeless Help and Support Cork Cork Life Centre! A huge thank you to everyone who participated and donated, it really was a huge success.
