BUDDY PADDLES SIMCOE 2020

Get ready to paddle your way across Lake Simcoe on July 11th, 2020

Mark your calendars for a tail-wagging event this summer!

More Information Coming Soon!

On July 11, 2020 Participating paddlers will cross Lake Simcoe in a “Buddy System”, with no paddlers left behind. The event is intended to build a spirit of camaraderie among participants while keeping the cause forefront in participants’ minds.

The event is an approximately 25 km touring of Lake Simcoe starting at a location on the northwest shore across the mouth of Kempenfelt Bay and ending at Leornard’s Beach in Innisfil. This event is for all levels of experience. There are options to join the group at approximately 10 km, 5 km, and 2 km points to the finish line.

Join us after the crossing to celebrate your achievement at our After-Party. Leonard’s Beach will be hopping with, vendors, demos, food and  music.

MEET BUDDY

Buddy Paddles Simcoe started as a celebration to honour one of our first COPE Service Dogs Buddy , who became a Canines In the Classroom Dog.

Buddy has made a significant difference in many youths lives over his career in the CIC program.

His calming effect with his students, helped them to gain confidence, learn communication skills and manage their emotions.  Buddy gave his students a new direction and made education fun!

Buddy is now a fetching13 years old and has retired from his career. In 2018 and to celebrate this milestone, COPE Founder Jane Boake and Buddy rode a paddleboard around Lake Simcoe making many stops along the way to bring awareness to COPE. This event was such a great success and truly loved by everyone who met Buddy, that it has become an annual event for all SUP’rs.

A big round of ap-paws for Buddy!
