More than 90 kayakers made their way down the water during the fourth annual Paint Creek Palooza this summer on their way to raising a record amount for the Adena Health Foundation’s Athlete of the Month Scholarship Fund.
Hosted by Adena Sports Medicine and Water's Edge Canoe Livery, the six-mile trip down the scenic Paint Creek allowed participants to float at their own pace, or compete in non-mandatory pit stop challenges for a chance to win prizes. Through support from event donors and participants, this year’s Paint Creek Palooza raised a record-high total of $9,000.
The Foundation’s Athlete of the Month Scholarship Fund awards outstanding high school male and female senior athletes, who excel in athletics as well as exemplify a commitment to academics and their communities.
Thank you to everyone who made this year’s event a record breaking success! We look forward to even more joining us next year making it even bigger and better.
