Paddle for Sight

September 21 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

$40

Celebrate the last day of summer with a paddle on the Mystic River, benefiting Hope in Focus and research to treat blindness!

On Wednesday, September 21, the last day of summer, join our paddle fundraiser sponsored by Adventure Mystic. Your fee includes a paddleboard or kayak, paddle, and life jacket. (Rain date, Thursday, September 22.)

Details:

  • Registration fee includes paddleboard or kayak, paddle, and lifejacket rental.
  • Participants must have prior paddleboard or kayak experience and are required to sign the Mystic Adventure Outdoors Sports waiver.
  • Rain date is Thursday, September 22, 2022.
  • Parking: limited parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis in the lot behind Adventure Mystic. As our event is on a Wednesday in late September, if that lot is full, finding a spot on the street in Mystic shouldn’t be too tricky!
  • Paddle time is 5:30pm to 7:30pm, however paddlers may arrive as early as 5pm at Adventure Mystic to meet us and get set up. After 6:50 new paddlers will not be accepted.
  • Yetis: If you purchase the paddle ticket with a Hope in Focus Yeti wine tumbler or mug, you will have a choice of a 1 wine tumbler or Yeti mug, based on availability. You will also have our sincere gratitude for your additional contribution to our cause!

Proceeds of this event benefit Hope in Focusa nonprofit 501(c)3 patient advocacy organization dedicated to generating awareness, raising funds for research, and providing support, education and outreach to the Leber congenital amaurosis and rare inherited retinal disease community. Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) is a rare inherited retinal disease characterized by severe vision loss at birth. While some children are born with little or no vision, others may have significant vision loss in the first few years of life, stable vision for a period of time, and then eventually complete vision loss as the retina deteriorates into total blindness.

We look forward to having some fun on the water while raising funds for our mission!
