Hundreds Enjoy Biggest Kids’ Mini-PPP Ever


If you thought the Pole Pedal Paddle was over, it wasn’t — hundreds of kids Sunday participated in the Kids Mini-Pole Pedal Paddle event.

A total of 245 teams of six children from first to sixth grade took part in the biggest Mini-PPP event they’ve ever had.

The course began with the kids getting into a raft and going down the Deschutes River, under the bridge.

Then they all ran, while one member got on a bike and the other four took part in an obstacle course with the last member of the team running to the finish line.

The course took the kids only about eight to 10 minutes.

“I just love watching them be so excited and yelling for their teammates,” said Molly Cogswell-Kelley, MBSEF events director.”They just get a participation ribbon, and they are all happy, and it’s just great to watch.”

The event is put on by volunteers, including the raft guides who provided their time.

And that wasn’t all: The kids also were treated to a free lunch at Outback Steakhouse.
