Each year on the 1st Saturday in May, since 1985 the Udora Leaskdale Lions Club holds their annual Canoe River Run. Sponsorship money is donated to a variety of local causes.
Some of the beneficiaries have been:
- 2017- The Sunny Brook Oncology Department
- Newmarket Hospital Oncology Department
- Georgina Womens Shelter
Enjoy natural beauty, serenity, and abundant wildlife as you paddle through the central Ontario wetlands. Be sure to bring your camera, to catch the wildlife in action. The River run is 14 km long and starts from Zephyr Road in the south and ends near the falls in Pefferlaw.
The Udora Lions Club provides a warm lunch and drink at the finish line, and a bus to take you and your canoe back to your car.
Prizes are awarded for the most sponsorship money raised, fastest canoe and fastest kayak.
