BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - The United Way of Harrison and Doddridge County held their annual “Paddle for a Cause” event.

Every year people come together at Maple Lake in Bridgeport to compete in float races.

Executive Director, Brad Riffee said 100% of the proceeds went directly back to the local community.

“I look out here at everybody in attendance. you’re all wonderful friends of the United Way. We’re all making a difference in our community,” he added.

They also held races for canoers, kayakers and paddleboarders.
