The life-size boats are made of cardboard, duct tape and polyurethane, and powered entirely by human paddling. The event is open to the public and there will be food and t-shirts available for sale.
THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD!
At this summer’s event, the People’s Choice Award will be presented to the team that raises the most money for UNITED WAY OF SOUTHWEST MICHIGAN leading up the race. The winner takes home the new People’s Choice Traveling Trophy AND will present a $2500 check to one of United Way's funded partners of their choice! Any United Way Funded Partner that signs up will have the choice to take home the $2500 for themselves or donate it.
