Lake Gaston Dam to Dam Paddleboard Challenge

All skill levels welcome

Annual Paddle Challenge Event

Doug Benson Dam Dam Paddle Challenge

The Doug Benson Dam Dam Paddle Challenge is a cancer fundraising event, in honor of our Lake Gaston family member Doug Benson, who passed away from lung cancer. Participants will pull out their stand up paddle boards, kayaks, and canoes to experience the true Lake Gaston endurance challenge of paddling the entire length of the lake or half the length of the lake. 


 All proceeds go to support the American Cancer Society. Donation information for our 2020 event coming soon.  


If you'd like to get involved, give us a call  (252) 536-9063 or send us message to stay in the loop. Its really fun.  To receive more information about this cancer fund raising event  send an email to dampaddlechallenge@gmail.com.
