Don't want to race Stand Up For CHEO Petawawa takes place on Sunday, August 7th, 2016.Join in this great event on the Ottawa River in Petawawa and help to make a difference for the kids of CHEO.
Stand Up For CHEO (SUFC) is a non-profit event sponsored by Trailhead Paddle Shack. All proceeds are donated to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). Now celebrating our 7th year, our mission statement has always been to raise money for a good cause and to grow the sport of Stand Up Paddling. Spend the day, meet fellow paddlers, promote fitness, have fun and support CHEO!
SUFC founders Mathew Hinther and Duncan Keith have both benefitted from the services of CHEO. Matt grew up with severe asthma and allergies and spent most of his youth in CHEO's care. Duncan's son Dylan also suffers from life threatening allergies and asthma. Together these two fathers decided they wanted to give something back to the hospital that has given them and their community so much. www.standupforcheo.com
