IRR 2MADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/19/18) — Winners that competed in the city of Madisonville’s iRecycle and Kayak Regatta in conjunction with the Madisonville-Hopkins County Economic Development Corp. gave back prize money to support local programs. The races were held during 4thFest week.

Winners of the iRecycle Regatta, TJ Phaup and Logan Taylor, decided to donate their prize money to high school athletic teams. Phaup was a former football player, while Taylor played on the soccer team.

Phaup and Taylor said they wanted to participate in the iRecycle race because they love competition and adrenaline from giving their best effort and winning. The pair decided to give back to the programs that built their competitive nature and helped them develop as men.

MadCity Mile winner, Tim Stutler, decided to make his donation to the Hopkins County Family YMCA. Stutler raced against 13 other watercrafts in Madisonville City Park Lake Friday to claim his victory.

“When my friend, Troy Whitehair, asked if I would sign up (for) MadCity Mile and race for the YMCA, I was happy to do so,” Stutler said. “The YMCA has so many programs that benefit various segments of community and it has been a very positive influence in my life, also. I have made several new friends, as well as a place to go when I need a great workout.”

Hopkins County Family YMCA Director Chad Hart said he was happy the EDC decided to take part in hosting the local event.

“Not only was it a really fun for all those who participated, but it shined a huge light on the great nonprofit work being done in the community,” he said. “Each racer went out on the lake with a purpose higher than themselves. They represented their organization of choice very well. We are grateful that Mr. Stutler chose the Hopkins County Family YMCA to receive the $250 winner’s award. I love competition, so we will be training even harder for next year's competition.”

EDC President Ray Hagerman said this year’s race exceeded expectations and hopes to repeat the experience next year with even more racers.
