Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake 2013

Twenty-three kayakers participated in the 5th Annual Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake event on July 20th and 21st, 2013 raising much needed scholarship dollars for students to participate in programs at the Camp Daggett Adventure Center (CDAC).  The annual event continues to grow each year since Karen Marietti, Director of CDAC, made the two day paddle solo five years ago.

This event was supported by donations in support of kayakers,  16 sponsors, a raffle of a kayak donated by The Outfitter of Harbor Springs,  the sale of over 100 dock flags, most to Walloon Lake residents who displayed the Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake dock flags, and general donations for the event.  Over $20,000 was raised this year!  To make this even more special the Doll-Loesel Foundation offered to provide a match of up to $20,000 for Kayak for a Cause on Walloon Lake!  

Thank you to our Sponsors!
