RCSI Bahrain’s Annual Charity Challenge 2013 “Paddle Bahrain” 7th-9th November

Paddle Bahrain, is the title of this year's annual charity challenge, which will take place between the 7th and 9th of November 2013, under the patronage of Dr Shaikh Mohammed Bin Abdulla Al Khalifa.

This event will see a team of open sea kayakers from RCSI Bahrain and Amwaj Marina Surfski Club attempt to paddle around Bahrain, a total distance of over 165 km, in three days.

The Paddle Bahrain challenge is being undertaken for the benefit of the Bahrain Diabetes Society. The aim of Paddle Bahrain is to raise funds and increase public awareness of the risk factors associated with developing Type II diabetes.

Over the next few months, Paddle Bahrain along with their sponsors and partners will be working together to get the message of the Bahrain Diabetes Society out to everyone in Bahrain, ‘Move with Us'.
