"In the 70's - 90's a group called the Jaycees started a Battle Creek Raft Race. 5 years ago we decided to bring it back. The Raft Race is a DIY Raft Competition that also includes large inflatables and also a rubber duck race. The only requirements are no motors or environmentally compromising materials. We want to protect our river! The event includes, food, drink, music, games and tons of fun! Contact us for more information and to find out how to participate and/or Volunteer.
The annual raft race will be held June 22, Noon - 5 pm. Come join us, bring your friends and family.
Duck and Raft registration 11:00 - 12:30, Launch at 1:00
More details to come….
The 6th Annual BCMAMS 2018 Raft Race was another success! The weather wasn't perfect, but we still had a great turnout from the community.
The raft race in the Battle Creek river had rafts, inflatables, and a lot of smiling faces. With the help of the Battle Creek Fire Department we even had an occasional rain shower, heavy at times.
We had our annual duck race to raise money for charity. This years recipient is Kambly Living Center. They are truly a worthy organization and a great partner.
Have you ever seen a group of adults and kids see just how fast you can eat a pie without using your hands? The contest is a fan favorite. Everyone was laughing and rooting them on. The contestants gave it there all and came up “messy"!
The mams would like to thank everyone who help make this annual event for charity a success. The volunteers, sponsors, food and beer vendors, and the bands that kept everyone entertained.
The BCMAMS are happy to announce that we were able to raise over $4000 for Kambly Living Center as the proceeds from our annual raft race event. As always it was such a pleasure and honor to work with Kambly Living Center as this year’s beneficiary.
The BCMAMS believe in the great work Kambly does, which makes them such a great organization for the beneficiary of our event.
