Registration is now open for the 15th Annual Kayak for the Warriors hosted by the Town of Pine Knoll Shores. The three-day event features a gala and silent and live auction, a golf tournament and a 3.2-mile kayak and paddleboard race, and a barbecue lunch benefiting Hope For The Warriors.

On Saturday, June 4, the signature kayak and paddleboard race begins at 10 a.m. The 3.2-mile race starts at Garner Park and moves through Bogue Sound and the Pine Knoll Shores canals. Registration is $50 for a single kayak and $100 for a tandem. Both include a t-shirt and lunch. Loaner kayaks are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and need to be reserved by emailing [email protected]

The Warrior Trophy is awarded to the paddler or team who brings in the most donations.

For those preferring to stay on land while supporting local veterans, military members, and families, lunch is available for $10 per person or $15 per family.

Tickets for the Wine & Dine Basket, containing over $1,000 of restaurant certificates and wine, are available for $10. The drawing will be held at the kayak/paddleboard race on June 4, but you do not need to be in attendance to win. For information and to purchase tickets, contact [email protected].
