Paddle The Grand

We are excited to let you know that the SLMC annual spring fundraiser is a go this year! Our Paddle the Grand event has been temporarily renamed and re-envisioned to safely take place during these Covid times. So mark your calendars now and plan to participate in the 60th Anniversary Edition of…

THE GRAND PADDLE & HIKE!  May 8 or 9, 2021

Create a Team for this Fundraiser

The event will look a bit different this year, as does everything, but we know the spirit and generosity of the Silver Lake community will shine as it has in the past.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards Silver Lake summer staff wages. Silver Lake has offered a number of staff contracts despite the uncertainty of these times. We believe in standing behind young leaders as they face unprecedented hurdles and challenges. Our only wish is that we could offer more contracts to the talented young adults who have applied. Any funds raised beyond summer staff wages expenses will go towards the general operating expenses. Please consider participating in this very important fundraiser and help support Silver Lake staff!


  1. SET UP YOUR FUNDRAISING PAGE: Register and create your page by clicking here! Whether it’s just you or your whole family, create a “team name” that your supporters will recognize. Add a photo to personalize your page! TIP: If you are registering your family, use your Team Name for your Personal Page Name as well. (** Participants will receive a 60th Anniversary/Paddle & Hike souvenir flag – one per team while supplies last! See pic below.)
  1. COLLECT DONATIONS ONLINE: Send the link for your fundraising page to family and friends and ask them to support you as you raise funds for Silver Lake. There are preset goals for the teams, but just do your very best with the fundraising. It’s amazing to see how generous people are when they know how special Silver Lake is to you!
  1. HIKE/WALK/RUN/PADDLE: On the weekend of May 7-9, get outside for some exercise and fresh air in your own neighbourhood or community. Even if your region is in lockdown, you can still take a walk around the block and support Silver Lake at the same time! (Please be sure to follow all COVID-19 guidelines in your area.)
  1. SHARE: Please take photos of yourself or family (with the souvenir flag!) participating in this fundraiser and send to Watch for team/participant photos to be posted on Facebook and Instagram!

Please also plan to join us for the SLMC Annual General Meeting which will take place on Zoom on Saturday, May 8 at 10am. A meeting link will be sent closer to the date.
