North Hempstead & Port Washington Community Chest to Host 12th Annual Manhasset Bay Kayak Run
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Community Chest of Port Washington will be hosting the annual Manhasset Bay Kayak Run on Saturday,
July 23 at 10 a.m. Participants will launch from the North Hempstead Town Dock or the Manorhaven Beach Boat Ramp at the sound of cannon fire, then will proceed for a leisurely paddle
around the bay, ending back at either location. The event is a fundraiser for the Community Chest of Port Washington, which serves those in need in the Port Washington community.
Participants may choose whether they would like to compete with kayaks, paddle boards or canoes. Kayak rentals are available to those who don’t own their own kayak from event sponsor, Atlantic Outfitters.
A raffle drawing will be held at the finish of the event at Town Dock at 1 p.m. The first place winner will receive a kayak, and other prizes will be available as well.
A rain date for the event is scheduled for Sunday, July 24 at 10 a.m.
