Fighting cancer and a bit of fun in Inlet

Canoeists and kayakers will make some waves toward a cure for breast cancer in Inlet on Saturday, September 24th. Hundreds of canoes and kayaks will converge in a large flotilla on Fourth Lake as part of the "One Square Mile of Hope" event.

In 2008, more than $50,000 was raised for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, and 1,104 paddlers set a world record for the most canoes/kayaks within a square mile on a body of water at the same time.

Organizers are going for the title again this month because Pittsburgh won the title last year and has challenged Inlet to a world title "float-off". Todd Moe talks with organizer Connie Perry, of "Frisky Otter Tours" in Inlet, who says the event is open to everyone. For more information: 315-357-5501  Go to full article
