This weekend at Bathsheba, some young paddlers and their mentors took to the water to participate in the International Canoe Federation (ICF) paddle challenge.
This initiative was a partnership between the International Canoe Federation and Sport and Peace, which falls under our Sport For All Commission. It saw young paddlers going for 2k to successfully complete the challenge.
The challenge was aimed at performance and getting people mobilized for solidarity as the competition was merged with Sport & Peace.
