"The Grand" event makes Columbus Whitewater history

Posted: Updated:

Uptown Columbus partnered with the Georgia Conservancy and Whitewater Express on Saturday, Aug. 9, for an event called "The Grand".

The goal of the event was to make Columbus whitewater history by sending 1,000 paddlers down the Chattahoochee Whitewater rapids in a single day. Rafting took place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and by noon, the goal of 1,000 had already been far surpassed.

The event was hosted by PricewaterhouseCoopers and TSYS.
