Wild Hog brings in hundreds

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

Organizers with the 36th Annual Wild Hog Canoe & Kayak Race say it's still too early to know just how much money was made at Saturday's event, though, based on attendance, it's believed it will be one of the most prosperous ever.
"We tripled attendance," said organizer Keith Maynard about the event that helps provide funding each year for Levy ARC, an organization committed to providing programs and services to the developmentally disabled in the area."I had hundreds of people come up to me and say this was the best year ever. I think this year we'll see the highest (amount of money) yet."
Maynard said the race, along with the annual Ride to Provide, is for LARC an important source of funding, something that has continuously decreased every year for the last decade or so.
"They depend on the Wild Hog Canoe Race. We just take great pleasure in helping those who can't help themselves."
