Now in its eighth year, the Mullum2Bruns Paddle returns May 27. Photo supplied

Each year since 2010, around a thousand people have taken to the water in various non-powered craft to paddle the 10km from Mullumbimby to Brunswick Heads.

Why not join them this year on the nearly legendary Mullum2Bruns Paddle on Sunday May 27?

Paddlers come in various shapes and sizes as do their craft: from individuals with inflatable flamingos to 22-person dragon boats.

There are serious competitors in the challenge events and people dressed up in all sorts of crazy costumes for the fun events. Amongst it all, there are lots of your friends and neighbours out for a leisurely paddle down the beautiful Brunswick.

Fundraiser

The paddle is the major annual fundraiser for the three deserving local groups that work very hard all year to make this event happen. They include the Brunswick Heads Surf Life Saving Club, Brunswick Marine Rescue and the Brunswick Visitor Centre – all worthy volunteer organisations that need your support to continue servicing our local community.

Major supporters and sponsors include The Echo, Mullum Comprehensive Health Care, the Hotel Brunswick and Stone & Wood.

Online registrations for the paddle open on March 8. Register early to qualify for the earlybird rate at www.mullum2brunspaddle.com.au.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
