RiverTrek 2018

RiverTrek 2018– Adventure for a worthy cause!

On October 9, 2018, a select group of intrepid kayak paddlers will begin the 107-mile journey down the length of the Apalachicola River, from Chattahoochee to Apalachicola, Florida. For 5 days they will paddle, averaging 20+ miles per day with side trips. Each night they will camp along the river’s edge.

Prior to launch, the volunteer paddlers seek donations from friends, family members, businesses and community members. RiverTrek volunteer paddlers are asked to set a minimum individual fundraiser goal of $1,000. Most paddlers exceed this. Including related fundraising events, the 2017 RiverTrek Team collectively raised nearly $60,000!
