About Paddle for Health:

Paddle for Health is a not for-profit team of volunteers dedicated to enhancing the lives of cancer patients and their families through paddle sport events and fundraisers. We are located in Victoria, British Columbia.

Since 2008 a dedicated group of volunteers and participants has passionately combined their love for paddling with philanthropy through an annual fundraising event in the waters off Victoria British Columbia. In 2014 Paddle for Health was born; building on the tremendous success and popularity of our annual paddling fundraiser, we would now grow to promote healthy outdoor living through year-round paddling events.
