On August 16, 2014 I took part in one of the most challenging paddleboard board events from Plymouth, Ma, across Cape Cod Bay to Wellfleet Harbor, approximately 35 miles and almost 11 hours. Being new to the sport with only 4 months to train, I was able to compete, finish, and accomplish an amazing goal! Now living in Florida, I didn't think I'd be able to compete again until I got word of the virtual CCBC paddle, which could be done at a location of your choice. Although this is a fun event it is also a charity event. All paddlers will raise money from family & friends to help support a wonderful non-profit organization in Boston called Christopher’s Haven (www.christophershaven.org). Christopher’s Haven provides housing to children (and their families) who come to Boston for pediatric cancer treatment.
