‘Paddle the Channel’ raises $10,000 for cancer research
Over 100 participants took to the waters of Lake Washington in various watercraft to paddle across the East Channel and back to raise money and awareness of childhood cancers.
The event raised over $10,000 to fund Seattle Children’s ongoing research into pediatric cancer. Kat Tiscornia, the daughter of Tim and Jane Tiscornia, has raised over $180,000 since being diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma in spring of 2013.
This was the second Paddle the Channel event. This year was special because the teen could be there — she had to hear about it last year from her bed at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
She will be a sophomore at Mercer Island High School this fall.
