#HighFivesAthlete Grant Korgan set three world records paddling FULL CIRCLE around Lake Tahoe!
Korgan paddled 14 hours 15 minutes and raised over $21,000 for athletes with life-altering injuries!
World records were set when 38-year-old Grant Korgan paddled in a one-man outrigger canoe completely around the shoreline of Lake Tahoe through the night. The 14 hour 15 minute journey began at 5:40pm on Wednesday, July 29. Korgan arrived back where he started at Waterman’s Landing in Carnelian Bay at 7:55amthis morning, Thursday, July 30th. He was greeted by a crowd of supporters, cheering him as he made it to shore. Korgan was accompanied throughout the entire circumnavigation by stand-up paddler Adam Freeman.
The goal of FULL CIRLCE, as the campaign is titled, was to raise money and awareness for Truckee-based High Fives Foundation. High Fives provides support and inspiration to mountain action sports athletes who have suffered life-altering injuries. So far FULL CIRCLE has raised over $21,000 and growing.
