If you’ve never before heard of The Tennessee River 600, you my friend are missing out. Beginning in 1997 as a fun ride PWC enthusiasts, the Tennessee River 600 has grown into an annual event with participants representing as many as 19 different states, and is the longest running organized event in the United States for personal watercraft.

Those choosing to tackle the might river stretching through the Middle South state raise funds for two children’s hospitals and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA). The money raised is divided among The Children’s Hospital, Birmingham, AL; and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. Thus far, the event has raised a total of $204,323!

According to the official Tennessee River 600, “The Children’s Hospital, Birmingham, AL is a member of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, an alliance of premier hospitals for children and one of the world’s leading children’s charities working to save and improve the lives of millions of children.”
