Teams from the Manitoba Paddling Association will paddle down the river this weekend in support of the Health Sciences Centre Foundation.
The public can watch the races beginning Friday evening at Manitoba Water Ski Park, 365 Murdock Road in Transcona. Races start at 6 p.m. on Friday, and will continue on Saturday, July 24 at 10 a.m. and on Sunday at 9:45 a.m.
Entertainment and activities are planned for the entire family during each day of the races.
