The Coeur d'Alene affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and ROW Adventures have teamed-up to raise money for the fight against breast cancer.
COEUR D'ALENE, ID – ROW Adventures, an Idaho-based adventure travel company, is hosting a breast cancer awareness fundraising event Aug. 10 on the Clark Fork River. The first annual rafting trip is limited to 100 participants and fifty percent of all proceeds will go directly to the Coeur d'Alene affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Raft for the Cure–Coeur d'Alene is a whitewater day trip through the Alberton Gorge on Montana's Clark Fork River. ROW Adventures will provide all necessary gear, professional whitewater rafting guides, riverside lunch, transportation to and from the river from Superior, Montana, and an event t-shirt for all participants.
The Alberton Gorge of the Clark Fork is an easy/intermediate stretch of river with roller coaster waves and Class II-III rapids. The river flows through a deep, isolated canyon and is a great introduction to whitewater rafting and an excellent family day trip (ages 5 and up).
"I've wanted to organize an event like this for a while," said Peter Grubb, founder of ROW Adventures. "It's an opportunity to float a beautiful stretch of river with friends and family, knowing that half the trip price will help fight breast cancer in our local communities. I'm happy to support this cause and look forward to making this rafting trip an annual event."
