11th Annual Paddle For A Cause
EVENT DATE: Jun 09, 2018
Taking a grueling journey around Absecon Island, competitors from across the globe will propel their paddleboards and #PaddleItForward to help people with cancer. Registration is now open for the 11th Annual Dean Randazzo Cancer Foundation Paddle For A Cause presented by Curexa Saturday, June 9 at Frank S. Farley State Marina at Golden Nugget Atlantic City.
More than 100 stand-up and prone paddleboarders, in addition to competitors in other types of watercraft including canoes, kayaks and rowboats, will embark on a 22.5-mile journey designed to test competitors mentally and physically similar to someone battling cancer. There are two options for people who want to participate in a non-competitive paddle. There is an 8-mile paddle to the Wonder Bar and back and a 4-mile option that finishes at the Wonder Bar.
Last year’s paddle raised more than $110,000 - funds that directly benefit individuals with cancer and for furthering cancer research.
