Dawn to Dusk is an endurance-paddling event where paddlers do laps for 12 hours around Ross Island in downtown Portland to raise money for the Children’s Cancer Association.  Since 2011, Bridge City Paddling Club raised more than $127,000 for this vital organization.  Bridge City Paddling Club is a non-profit organization, dedicated to both community service and competition.
