BeCause Water invites you to compete in the first official Charles River Rummage: a kayak clean-up competition for river protection and a cash prize.

The Breakdown

  • 1:00 Kick-off introduction
  • 1:30 – 2:30 Boats out!
  • Teams of 4 (2 double kayaks per team) will compete to collect as much MAN-MADE debris as possible in 1 hour of “rummaging” through the Charles River.
  • The team at the end who has the most weight of debris will win a  CASH PRIZE! There will also be prizes for 2nd and 3rd place.
BeCause Water will provide all equipment, including nets and kayaks.
Don’t have a full team? Don’t worry! Contact us at and we will make sure to put you with fellow Rummagers!
Part of a bigger group (>4 people)? Bring everyone! We’ll be giving shout-outs and prizes to bigger groups as well!
