The Canoe for Kids event took place on Saturday June 1st and a great day was had by all.

Thankfully the weather held out for the morning making it a very pleasant day.  Overall the event raised in excess of $110,000 to support the Christie Lake summer camp and after school program.

A couple of IBISKA consultants hopped on board the IBISKA canoe this year to lend some additional muscle power and enthusiasm to our paddling crew.

MANY THANKS to IBISKA staff, consultants, clients and to all our friends who very generously donated to this great cause!

Highlights of the day 

  • The IBISKA team was the top team fundraiser this year with over $11,000 raised! Our collective effort will enable at least 6 kids from disadvantaged families to enjoy 2 weeks at summer camp.
  • For the 3rd year in a row, Cathy Loosley from IBISKA was the top individual fundraiser.
  • This year again the IBISKA paddlers gave their all in the canoe race – thanks to some new crew members, our canoe came first on one of the races!  Although we did not place overall in the race, we enjoyed a short moment of victory!

Moment of Victory

To all the kids that will benefit from this collective effort …  may you have many sunny days at camp this summer!
