WARREN COUNTY, Ky. (WBKO) -- Saturday morning summer sports were used as an opportunity to help out the community.
Hospice of Southern Kentucky held Race on the River for the first time.
Canoes, kayaks and inner tubes raced down the river hoping to be the first at the finish line at Phil Moore Park.
The event included a festival with food, music and inflatables for those who decided the water wasn't for them.
"We are a non-profit organization providing hospice care to those that may not even have the means of payment. We do events, fundraisers like this, to help us, support us, in covering those costs for the patients. We don't want to turn anybody away that needs hospice care," said Jennifer Brashear, the marketing director for Hospice of Southern Kentucky.
Brashear said the event was presented by Nat's Outdoor Sports along with several other sponsors, and she hopes it will become as big of a success as Hospice's annual chocolate festival.
