Why should you support us?


The Unsinkables is a paddling team of cancer survivors and support persons. We need funding to fulfill our mission of providing health, healing, and hope through camaraderie and physical activities. Dues are minimum to allow for maximum participation by as many people as possible.

The Unsinkables raises money for paddles, personal floatation devices, race entrance fees, travel expenses and team jerseys. 

Please support us!

Where your money goes:

  • Racing Fees

  • Costs to participate in races (transportation & housing)

  • Team jerseys, hats, personal floatation devices

  • Paddles

  • Boats & boat maintenance
