On behalf of The Marco Island Area Chamber of Commerce, its Board of Directors, its members, staff and volunteers, Leadership Marco, the children who benefit from the Leadership Marco Alumni Scholarship Fund and the committee who helped to organize the 2011 Island Paddle Challenge, we would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU!
In addition to providing a new, fun and interesting diversion during this “shoulder” season on Marco Island, the primary purpose of this event is to raise money for local high school children, determined to further their education.
As you are no doubt aware, an event of this magnitude takes the hard work and energy of a large and dedicated group of individuals. We were fortunate enough to have such a group on our side.
We thank our SPONSORS, SPECTATORS, PARTICIPANTS and VOLUNTEERS for making the Inaugural Island Paddle Challenge a success!
The final race results are as follows:
MEN: 1st-David Jalving of Ft. Myers, FL, 2nd-Donald Payne of N. Ft. Myers, FL
WOMEN: 1st-Inga-Lill Tuffner of Naples, FL, 2nd-BreAnne Barrett of Naples, FL
