Grab a Paddle & Help Madison’s Lakes this Summer

Paddle for a Purpose kicks off at Brittingham Boats on Lake Monona

People looking for an excuse to ditch out of work a little early on a warm Monday afternoon need to look no farther than one of three Madison Boats locations. Starting on Monday, June 4, Madison Boats will kick off its “Paddle for a Purpose” program with Clean Lakes Alliance. The program will dedicate 20% of all paddle sport rentals every Monday this summer from 4-8 p.m. at its Brittingham Boats, Wingra Boats, and Marshall Boats locations to Clean Lakes Alliance.

“Clean and healthy lakes are essential to our business,” said Madison Boats owner Tyler Leeper. “We’ve supported Clean Lakes Alliance since the beginning and we are excited to get more community members behind raising funds for our lakes.”
