Kayak for a Cure launches from Jericho Beach


Celebrating their 5th Anniversary, Kayak for a Cure is back in Vancouver for another amazing event that promises to please all of your summer senses.

Kayak for a Cure kicks off on Sunday, August 29th at Jericho Beach at the Ecomarine Ocean Kayak Centre. Registration is at 8:00am and the kayaks launch promptly at 9AM. They’ll be serving up Starbucks coffee and snacks along with great music to get you pumped.

New to kayaking? No sweat. There will be certified ocean kayak staff members there to guide you and provide you with safety tips and the Canadian Cancer Foundations’ Sun patrol is handing out free sunscreen. Afterwards there is a beach party where you can mix and mingle with your fellow kayakers and enjoy a BBQ lunch.

More so than in years past, spots are limited due to demand vs. number of kayaks available (100), so if you’ve got your own kayak bring it along. Register online to reserve your spot right away.
