  • Passions Collide: Artists & Paddlers Meet

    We thank everyone who joined us on March 6 at the Stutz Center, Indianapolis, for a unique collaboration between Indy SurviveOars and the Stutz Artist Association.  This special event featured paddle art by Indianapolis artists available for viewing and sale by silent auction.  Participating artists competed for two very special awards. Congratulations to Christian Felder who won the Best of Show and to Paula Aramendia Wright for winning the People's Choice award.  To view those, and all of the amazing artist creations that were auctioned, click here.

  • Healing on the Water


    WISH-TV, a local Indianapolis TV station, recently featured Indy SurviveOars in a media spot. The reporter even joined the team during practice on a chilly, blustery October evening on Geist Reservoir, seated in the drummer's seat at the front of the boat. We thank WISH-TV for taking an interest in Indy SurviveOars and for helping us share our message with a larger audience. Please enjoy the article and video on their site:
