Dedicated to merging Art, Science & Community in the Niagara Region, Perio in the Peninsula invites you to participate in the creation of something spectacular!

Purchase your Paddle

Purchase your unfinished 56″ wooden canoe paddle.  Paddles are available for purchase at:

  1. The office of Dr. Peter Fritz
    165 Highway 20 West, Fonthill
  2. All Base Camp Lectures
    Niagara College – Welland Campus

Paddles can be purchased for $45 (inclusive of tax) with all proceeds supporting the Niagara chapter of ALS Canada.

Decorate your Paddle

Decorate your paddle to be uniquely yours!  There are no limits to the way in which you can decorate your paddle.  The addition of extra material to your paddle is allowed.  The only limitation is your imagination!

Paint IT – Burn IT – Etch IT – Carve IT – Sculpt IT – Add to IT – The Choice is Yours!

You can even decorate your paddle on your own (solo mission) or as a team (group trek).

Return your Paddle for Auction!

Return your unique piece to the office of Dr. Peter Fritz by March 4, 2020 and watch it go to the highest bidder at auction!

Prizes will be awarded to the paddles that raise the most at auction and to random entrants to the auction.

Stay tuned for more information on the upcoming live auction, scheduled to occur in Spring 2020.

All proceeds from the sale of paddles and the auction support our local chapter of ALS Canada.

ALS Canada provides support for people and families living with ALS, funds high-quality research that offers the most promise to slow down ALS or even stop it, and advocates for policy that will have a meaningful impact on people living with ALS today and in the future.
