Pink water is a whitewater community that started in Lac Saint-Jean, Qc. We want women to be confortable on the river #pinkambassadrice ❤🌊🌸
Pink Water was created in the summer of 2013 by two young women passionate about whitewater, Audrey Ahier and Shéril Gravel. Thet first created a Facebook page to promote the whitewater sports in Quebec to build a female community that would practice it.
In the summer of 2014, they started a pilot project, an introduction to water sports for women. On June 21st and 22nd that year, 70 participants registered and made this first edition a great success.
In the following months, the organization made the decision to register Pink Water as a non-profit organization to gain freedom in the creation and organization of new activities. Pink Water wanted to allow the community to grow and evolve in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean’s region and throughout the province of Quebec. It was in February 2015 that the registration was formalized. Therefore, the organization had set up the second edition of its event, the Pink Water Challenge 2015. The media coverage and the extent of the people who took part in the event was dazzling. More than 90 women crossed the rapids of the Mistassibi River and pushed their limits. The organization was able to count on the invaluable collaboration of 300 volunteers, professionals and observers in the success of this second edition.
Recognized for its originality, attention to detail, the positive energy that emanates from it and the influence it has created among women, the Board of Directors has decided to concretely work on the establishment of an action plan to export its product in different regions of Quebec and internationally.
