Raft Up is the uniting of a community to defend the WA state record for the most kayaks, paddleboards and rafts linked together. Join VYFS to fill the harbor with human-powered water craft rafted side by side in celebration of the fact that “We’re Stronger Together.” A family-friendly community celebration, this year’s event will include food, a music stage, children’s carnival games and a kayak raffle. The festivities run 10:00 am – 3:00 pm rain or shine. The rafting up will take place on the water at 1:30.
Any human-powered watercraft is welcome. Once on the water we’ll perform the raft up maneuver (link hands, paddles or oars across your neighbor’s boat to create a strong, stable connection). Registration information and all the facts can be found at vyfs.org/raftup or the VYFS office. Early Bird registration of $20 (a savings of $5) is available until August 20
th. Kayak raffle tickets are available of the Vashon Bookshop or the VYFS office.
The Raft Up! event raises critical funds to support the many Vashon Youth & Family Services mental health and community programs that help Vashon thrive.
