Kayaking for a Kause is a non-profit organization designed to improve the dental health of Mississippi’s youth and reach families unable to afford dental care.

Kayaking for a Kause has partnered with Dr. Jason Papania and South Mississippi Smiles to provide $8,000 of Dental treatment to two Coast kids.
