Think Pink this Valentine’s Day

     The Pink Paddle is the perfect Valentine’s gift for your sweetheart.  Canoe enthusiasts can make a difference and help save a life buy purchasing a Pink Paddle to fight breast cancer. 

     I designed and developed the paddle and had the support of Wenonah Canoe CEO Mike Cichanowski who manufactured them. The Pink Paddle is a proud supporter of the National Breast Cancer Foundation whose mission is, “To save lives by increasing awareness of breast cancer through education and by providing mammograms for those in need.” 

     The Pink Paddle is not only a functional, bent-shaft, graphite, paddle but is also a beautiful piece of art. The logo on the paddle is a wish or a blessing to anyone, but especially to those who have been affected by breast cancer. Created by Sue and a few Maori symbols, the logo is a wish that means, “May your new beginning bring you strength, peace and tranquility and may your journeys over water always be safe.” 

      Make a difference and make your sweetheart happy this Valentine’s Day with a Pink Paddle.  For more information about Pink Paddles visit the website at or call Sue Prom at 1-888-CANOEIT.
