Paddle for the Cure

Paddle for the Cure takes place during PaddleFest. This friendly dragon boat competition benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure Central and Western Oklahoma Affiliate. More than 300 athletes participated in the first Paddle for the Cure during the 2012 Oklahoma Regatta Festival, and we're ready to welcome even more when Paddle for the Cure returns to the Oklahoma River during the inaugural PaddleFest event!

The competition features teams of 20 paddlers and one drummer racing down the Oklahoma River. Each team gets two, 60-minute practice sessions before racing on the Oklahoma River. Everyone gets a race t-shirt and medals will be awarded to the top three finishers.
