Once again IBISKA is participating in the annual Canoe for Kids fundraiser in support of Christie Lake Camp. This event will raise funds for summer camp and programs that provide underprivileged kids in the Ottawa area with opportunities that they wouldn’t otherwise have. This family-friendly event takes place on Saturday, June 7th at Mooney’s Bay.
Help the IBISKA Paddlers support Ottawa’s children and youth by making a small contribution – This link will take you to the IBISKA Team’s page: IBISKA Paddlers.
NOTE: As has been the custom in prior years, any donation made prior to June 5th EOD will be matched by IBISKA.
Thanks to all that contributed to last year’s fund raising success: over $11,000 was raised by the IBISKA Paddlers – helping 7 local kids go to camp
Since 1922, Christie Lake Kids (CLK) has been responding to the specific needs of economically disadvantaged children age 6-17 from the Ottawa area. In the summer, more than 300 kids can come to camp for 2 weeks at a cost of $1500 per child. During the rest of the year more than 600 children and youth can learn to play hockey, swim, cook and through other programs offered to 6 high-risk communities.
