The female staff of Comox Valley Kayaks and Canoes were joined by members of the Comox Paddlers Club and other members of the paddling community to celebrate International Women’s Day.
The all-women group headed out for a morning paddle to explore the Courtenay River Estuary by kayak. Comox Valley Kayaks & Canoes waived the rental fee for the kayaks in favour of collecting donations for the Comox Valley Transition Society.
The group of eight paddlers raised $100 for CVTS, and had a great time on the water among a diverse group of women who share a love of paddling.
The participants were Lauren LaBossiere (CVKC manager), Gabriela Brunschwiler (CVKC staff), Elsa Skender, Michelle Quaife, Marie Maccagno, Norene Wells, Sharon Haave and Leslie Hauser.
