The Paddle Battle to raise money for the Petersburg Medical Center was held on Saturday, July 15.

The Petersburg Medical Center set a goal to generate $10,000 from the 2017 Paddle Battle fundraiser, but nearly a month has passed and the number is about half that, despite there being more participants.
