Join us out on the river this Saturday, August 13, 2011! This is an incredibly fun event that represents why we love living in Bend, and best of all it raises money for one of our favorite non-profits, the Deschutes River Conservancy.
We had a blast out on the river last year and got some hilarious photos of all the folks out racing with their dogs! Tumalo Creek proud to be the official safety boaters for race for the river.
