Tara Lindgren (Manitoba Hydro Power Paddlers)
I started paddling every year in this festival with the Manitoba Hydro Power Paddlers in 2008, making this year #12 on the team. For the last number of years we have supported CancerCare Manitoba and the Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. All money raised in this event goes to these causes and stays in Manitoba to support our local kids and their families.
It's rare to find anyone that hasn't been touched by cancer. Without events like this one that raise much needed funds for support and research, we'd never make any headway against the disease, so this is our little way of trying to make some kind of difference. Even if we can just help make someone's journey a little easier, it's worth it.
Thanks for your support, and I hope to see you out at the Forks in September!
