The Ascot Kayak Club run an amazing event and we look forward to seeing Locky Gilbert and many other athletes compete. The funds raised through this event will provide crucial support in a very challenging year, allowing us to continue delivering mental health and wellbeing programs to thousands of young Western Australians.
