Paddlers float program for cancer kids

PADDLING — If you’re looking for inspiration tonight, check out the free First Descents program at the Spokane Canoe and Kayak Club meeting.

“The River Ward” is a documentary that chronicles the experiences of four individuals as they attend a First Descents week-long kayak camp for young adults with cancer. First Descents was founded 10 years ago by professional kayaker Brad Ludden to help cure young adults of the emotional effects of cancer and empowering them to regain control of their lives by experiencing outdoor adventure therapy through kayaking, rock climbing and other outdoor adventure sports.

The program starts at 7 p.m. at the Corbin Community Center, 827 W. Cleveland.
