About this Event
Race day is set for one of the signature events during the State Employees' Community Campaign (SECC). The 16th Annual State Employees' Paddle Battle competition takes place on Friday, September 9 on White River Canal.
At 12:15 p.m. Sept. 9, teams from 25 state agencies are set to compete and again we're doing it for charity. All procees will be donated to the winning team’s 501 (c) (3) charity of choice for SECC.
The defending champions from the Indiana Department of Transportation will return to defend possession of the coveted Paddle Battle Oar!
Once the field is full, teams are assigned into five heats with a random draw. The winners of the five heats qualify for the championship race. Teams and heat assignments will be announced prior to the event.
Spectators are welcome and encouraged! Be sure to come to the canal and cheer on your agency and take part in the fun!
