August 28 - August 28

The Callie Rohr Memorial Canoe and Kayak Race was established by Jeff and Marcia Rohr, the parents of Callie Rohr, who lost her 2 1/2-year battle with brain cancer in 1999, just five days before her 10th birthday.
This annual event takes place in Northern Wisconsin on the Headwaters of the Wisconsin River, offering thirteen different classes and is one of Wisconsin’s sanctioned premier canoe and kayak races.
Following the races, participants and spectators are invited to attend the Pig Roast at Rohr’s Wilderness Tours, accompanied by an exciting live auction, music and award ceremony where trophies will be given to the winners in each class.
The Callie Rohr Memorial Canoe and Kayak Race has a place for everyone and spectators are welcome and encouraged to come support this worthwhile cause to help raise awareness of this devastating disease and join the battle to find a cure for pediatric brain cancer.
