Paddle for Benny

KWP and the paddling community were saddened to hear of the loss of Benjamin “Benny” Alexander Grose, Leah Kindree’s son.
After living with mental illness for more than 20 years, his struggle became overwhelming, and tragically, Benny ended his life.
After discussions with Leah and Wayne (her husband of many years), we decided to create an annual event that commemorates Benny’s life as well as spark a conversation regarding the importance of mental health support.

The course cost is $75 per person with rental costs included, camping is extra. The available courses are on Saturday the 25th from 1:00 – 4:00 pm

  • Introduction to Whitewater Tandem Canoe
  • Introduction to  Whitewater Kayak
  • Introduction to Whitewater Packraft

Come enjoy the weekend, live music & fun on the water while supporting this wonderful initiative.
