You'll never feel BETTER about having so much FUN!
Splash for Pink, an annual breast cancer care benefit, invites you to kick summer into full gear on June 25th with a fun-filled day of guided white water rafting on the Deschutes River, local barbecue and microbrew, live music, volleyball tournament, kids’ activities, silent auction, golf tournament and more. Net proceeds from the event will be donated to three Oregon beneficiaries: OHSU Knight Cancer Institute in Portland, the Celilo Cancer Center fund at the Mid-Columbia Health Foundation in The Dalles and Sara’s Project at St. Charles Health Foundation in Central Oregon. What a unique way to raise money for breast cancer care!
We are asking for your support at our 6th annual event as we strive to raise even more money to help find a cure for breast cancer and support those affected by the disease. In the past 5 years combined, we have been able to distribute almost $80,000 to our beneficiaries. Driven to support family members – and all Oregonians – who have been affected by breast cancer, the Maupin Chamber of Commerce and Imperial River Company invite you to sign up for the festivities, starting with a 13-mile guided rafting trip, all in the name of fighting breast cancer. Guided rafting tours can be booked in advance on-line or by calling 541.395.2404.
“Many Maupin Chamber of Commerce members have family members who have suffered from the disease, giving this cause an important place in our hearts,” says Susie Miles, owner of Imperial River Company. Members and supporters of Splash for Pink insist that donating the raised money to local beneficiaries is what makes this event so special. “Celilo Cancer Institute, for example, has been such a wonderful support for our cancer-stricken community members and families. Knowing this money goes there, rather than out of state, is what makes this event awesome!”
Guided rafting tours can be booked for a $69 donation per person (includes a Pink T-shirt) for a 3-hour excursion. Trips depart at 10am and 1pm on Saturday, June 27 at the Imperial River Company. You'll begin this action-packed adventure at Harpham Flats. Tackle a series of Class III and IV rapids, including the infamous Boxcar, then feel your adrenaline peak again as you raft Oak Springs. The public is also invited to enjoy a barbecue lunch (for a $10 donation), as well as family-friendly activities throughout the day. full event schedule
