Over 3,000 people gathered in the little town of Inlet, NY on Saturday, September 13, 2014 and set out on Fourth Lake to break the record for the largest raft of canoes and kayaks at the One Square Mile of Hope event.
This was our third attempt at this record. Our first two attempts were both successful: 1,104 boats in 2008 and 1,902 boats in 2011.
Both events were also fundraisers for the fight against breast cancer, raising over $132,000 between the two events.
