Rohr's canoe race has important causeJeff and Marcia Rohr, owners of Rohr’s Wilderness Tours in Conover, are preparing for the seventh annual Callie Rohr Memorial Canoe and Kayak Race this Saturday and Sunday, June 11-12, to benefit children’s brain tumor research.
The Rohrs have raised more than $76,000 over the last six years and have funded three research programs. This year, the race proceeds will go to Dr. Tomita’s research program at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Ill.
“It’s a great feeling to know where our donated dollars go and to be making a real contribution to find a cure,” said Marcia Rohr.
