The Paddler’s Pledge Program is an integral part of the festival’s fundraising efforts to support our chosen charity the Howard Young Foundation.

You can donate on behalf of a team or directly to the Howard Young Foundation. The Howard Young Foundation's mission is help to transform and sustain health care in northern Wisconsin communities where we live, work and play for generations to come. Please consider pledging a gift to help provide technologically advanced state-of-the-art care right here in our community. Every gift made during the campaign will be matched dollar for dollar thus doubling the value thanks to the extreme generosity of Ascension. If you choose to donate on behalf of a team, we may share your name with the team's captain. Thank you for your pledge!
