Disability Kayak Challenge


  The three day Challenge involves kayaking from the Port of Sale to the sea at Lakes Entrance, a distance of 120km.  The new One Day Challenge has been introduced in the alternate year and covers a distance of 30km from Bairnsdale to Metung.  All funds raised from both Challenges provide support to those within our Gippsland East community who have been affected by permanent or long term disability, assisting them to attain/gain an improved quality of life and independence
