The Canoe-a-thon is an annual event that involves a 20 mile-long canoe trip down the Yellow Breeches to the Susquehanna River to raise money to fund students doing missions in the summer.



Are you ready to get your feet wet in service here at Messiah College? Then come out to the 38th annual Canoe-a-thon and help raise funds to support student missions by spending a day canoeing 20 miles down the Yellow Breeches. Each participant must raise a minimum of $100 total (the same as asking for $10 from 10 different people), all of which goes to grants allowing students to go on individualized mission trips.


Come out October 5th, 2013 @ 7:30am until 5:30pm! We'll even provide your lunch!


It's as easy as 1,2,3 to support Summer Missions!




1. Fund-raise $100

Ask your parents, relatives, community members, professors, church members, anyone! Someone would love to support you! $100 is your goal, just try your best!


2. Grab a partner!

Anyone will do! A friend, hall mate, 2nd cousin... Just Say "me and you in a canoe"


3. Canoe down the Yellow Breeches to the Susquehanna - a glorious river!

The last step? Have fun, of course!
