About the event

As with last summer's cycling challenge (was that Pedal for Progress?!) we are embarking on a fundraiser for the National Brain Tumor Society and traveling in memory of Jim Goeke-Morey. If you would like to contrbute, please hit the donate button above, buy yourself some groovy Paddle for Progress swag in our store, or both!

This year's challenge will be a two-man canoe expedition through the Catawba Chain of Lakes. The chain consists of Lake James, Lake Rhodhiss, Lake Hickory, Lookout Shoals Lake, Lake Norman, Mountain Island Lake, and Lake Wylie. We will traverse the seven lakes (and the sections of the Catawba that link them) in a southeasterly direction, beginning in Linville, NC and ending in Rock Hill, SC. 

The journey will be roughly 160 mliles and should take us 10-12 days. See the route map HERE.
