LAREDO, TEXAS Celebrations for Earth Day continue in the City of Laredo Sunday Morning.
Dozens took part in the Rio Grande International Study Center's Kayak Race.
Twenty-two teams took on the challenge at this year’s event.
Two of those participants were Helen Trevino and Xochitl Ramos.
The two friends signed up as team without much experience in kayaking, but were eager to take part of the experience.
The relay was dived into four categories: youth, women, men, and an open division.
Organizers say by hosting the kayak race they can provide and introduce community members to take advantage of the outdoor
activities that can be found throughout Laredo.
For Helen and Xochitl, the two beginners came only to have fun, but walked out winners.
The top winner of the race won a brand new kayak.
