Kayaking for CASA Logo 2MADISONVILLE, Ky. (6/7/19) — The Second Annual Kayaking for CASA is an opportunity for individuals to come out to beautiful Mahr Park and launch a kayak onto the Pee Wee Lake for a great morning of kayaking with others. Originally scheduled for Saturday, organizers have rescheduled to the rain date of June 22 due to the weather forecast.

This is an open kayaking event to raise awareness and funds for the Court Appointed Special Advocates Program of Hopkins, Webster, and Crittenden Counties, Inc., CASA Director Daphyne Maddox reported. Kayak event registration cost is $25. 

Kayakers can launch beginning 6 a.m., and the event will wind down at noon followed by lunch or snacks available for sale. Volunteers will be grilling hamburgers, hot dogs and box lunches will be available. Tables and chairs will be set up to enjoy lunch in the picturesque Mahr Park. 

Some kayaks and life vests will be available for those that want to try kayaking that do not own one of their own. Also, children under the age of 13 are required to kayak with an adult. All participants must wear life jackets. CASA organizers will accept onsite registrations the day of the event if space allows, with kayaks/life jackets available.

CASA trains community volunteers to represent abused and neglected children in the family court systems. The organization says volunteers advocate to give youth a voice, keep them from falling through the cracks and ensure they have a safe, permanent home as soon as possible. Training sessions for volunteers begin this month.
