Check out what past competitors have to say about this event:
“…the paddle was amazing. It was one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done in my life both mentally and physically. I had never paddled anywhere near that distance in a straight shot before and didn’t know what to expect. I was a little nervous at first but just decided I would give it a go and just take it one stroke at a time. Knowing that no matter how challenging the paddle would be it would never amount to a fraction of the challenges Dean has been through with cancer gave me the confidence to sign up and push off the shoreline. Then seeing the camaraderie between everyone out in the water made things that much easier. It was honestly one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life having completed it and completed it in good time.”
“The Paddle for a Cause was one of the most grueling, yet rewarding things I’ve ever participated in. It’s just as much of a mental battle as it is physical. Throughout the 22 miles you start to lose your mind a bit, hitting a number of walls along the way. Staying properly fed and hydrated while taking it one mile at a time helped me push through those mental barriers. Pulling up to the dock at the end of it all was a euphoric feeling. You’re totally out of it: sun burnt, starving and stoked to have completed such a meaningful paddle.”
“As a cancer survivor myself and as a surfer/waterman, it has be an an incredible feeling being a part of expanding the foundation–for example, Paddle for a Cause just keeps getting bigger and better each year, and to be a part of that is nothing less than an awesome experience.”
“It was a great event. I didn’t paddle last year but I supported everyone from one of the support boats. Its great to see the support and determination of the paddlers to help raise money for a great cause. I’m really looking forward to this years Paddle for a cause, its going to be bigger and better than ever.”
