Kayak for the Warriors™ is an annual fundraising event for HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS® to benefit our brave, combat injured and fallen service men and women and their families, sponsored by the Town of Pine Knoll Shores, NC.

Join us on our 10th Anniversary !! Our annual kayak and paddle board race will be on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 10am, traversing a 3.2-mile route along the town’s beautiful canals and Bogue sound.  In the 2016 event, more than 140 participants raced or just paddled at a leisurely pace while enjoying the scenery. Kayakers of all ages and skill levels are welcome. In 2016 we raised $68,000 for Hope For The Warriors®, a civilian non-profit organization supporting those who have sacrificed in the name of freedom.

The 5K Run for 2017 is scheduled for Saturday, May 27 (Memorial Day weekend)  at 8am

The Reception for 2017 is scheduled at the Pine Knoll Shores aquarium on Thursday, June 1 at 6pm
