Give back Tahoe article – Support the most recent High Fives campaign as Reno/Tahoe Athlete Grant Korgan circumnavigates Lake Tahoe today, July 29th, in an outrigger canoe. Korgan is a High Fives Foundation grant recipient recovering from a spinal cord injury. He will paddle along the shoreline, roughly 72 miles, to raise awareness and funds to give BACK to the High Fives Foundation – the organization that has been there throughout his recovery. His goal is raising $25,000.
Paddling the lake will set the Guinness World Record in three categories:
- Fastest time for a spinal cord injured athlete to circumnavigate Lake Tahoe in a one-man outrigger canoe
- Fastest time to circumnavigate Lake Tahoe in a one-man outrigger canoe
- Fastest time to circumnavigate Lake Tahoe with human power.
The current unofficial record for paddling around Lake Tahoe is 16.5 hours.
