Hear about Traci Lynn Martin’s journey around the Great Lakes while enjoying a glass of wine, appetizers, raffles, 50/50, and door prizes
From March through December, Martin paddled, aiming to set a world record by circumnavigating all five Great Lakes in one year.
The competitive endurance kayaker suffers from rheumatoid arthritis and wakes up each day feeling like she’s been hit by a train. But she paddled her surf ski kayak and become the first person ever to circle the three biggest Great Lakes in one year, though she had to give up on her goal of circumnavigating all five Great Lakes in one year.
Proceeds will benefit Traci’s 2020 expedition 2.0 to circumnavigate all 5 Great Lakes.
To reserve your tickets mail a check made out to Mary Hoholski, 8159 Risden Road, Vermillion, 44089, $20 for each ticket. They will be held at the door for you.
If weather permits, you can kayak with Martin on the Vermilion River in the afternoon, meeting at the Vermilion Port Authority Boat Launch, 777 West River Road by 12:30 p.m. They’ll be on the water from 1-3:30 p.m. returning to the same boat launch.
