The Canoes for A Cause River Float is just around the corner. All proceeds from the River Float go to the organization Keep North Dakota Clean.
It’s a community event focused on cleaning up the river banks on both sides of the Missouri River in Bismarck and Mandan, along with a Missouri River Float.
We talked to a few of the guys at Jerome Distributing — Jay Moch, General manager, and Eric Sanders, Director of Operations — about how the event originated and why they do it.
The Float takes place this weekend on Saturday, August 17th. Registration is at Misty Waters at noon.
The Bismarck/Mandan River Clean Up then takes place Saturday, September 7th.
Grab your big unicorn floaty, your kayak or canoe, pontoon, or inflatable pool and float down the Missouri River. Drop-in point is at Misty Waters and goes to the Broken Oar.
You must be 21+ to float.
Jerome Distributing will be offering bags to put participants’ trash in during the float.
This is an annual event and the organizers say they hope it becomes a tradition.
