Flotilla Announcement: In place of the Flotilla, we will be extending our fundraiser and having a 5K Relay Race for Paddlers as a part of our River House Celebration on July 15th! More information will be added as it is available.

Picture the excitement of a child on their first canoe experience. You can help provide canoe opportunities for youth to connect with nature on the Bronx River! Join the 2017 Amazing Bronx River Flotilla and help us reach our goal of $65,000 to make canoe adventures available to 1,000 kids and their families.

How does it work? A designated captain will take the lead in forming a team of 6 to 10 people to compete in a canoe relay course (five legs) for a total distance of 5K. The relay race should take between 40 minutes to 1.5 hours to complete.

Registration fee: The registration fee is $50 and is included in the $350 fundraising goal. Each team will commit to fundraising a total of $2,100 - $3,500 ($350 per person). We will provide you with all the necessary equipment: a canoe, paddles and life vests for your team. All participants will receive a t-shirt and a goody bag. There will be fun prizes for the top fundrasiging teams and individuals.

You MUST bring both the ACA Adult Waiver Form (found here) as well as the Consent to Use Name and Likeness Form (found here).

Public Ceremony and Celebration After the canoe trip, we will celebrate the winners and kick off an afternoon of festivities in Satrlight Park.
