Help a family through a difficult time & consider supporting my fundraising effort for the 13th Annual Cape Cod Bay Challenge (CCBC) raising money for Christopher’s Haven. I appreciate that many of you have supported the cause in the past & hope you will consider this amazing cause again.
The primary goal of the CCBC a long-distance SUP marathon paddle is to raise funds for a truly wonderful non-profit organization, Christopher’s Haven (CH). Located near Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, CH consists of ten fully furnished apartments & a community recreation area for families of children being treated for cancer in nearby Boston hospitals. CH is much more than just a place to stay; it’s a support system to help with things large and small, a community where families can be together, share a laugh, be comforted, and comfort others. Over 350 families have stayed at CH to date and the CCBC’s support over the past 12 years has helped make those stays possible.
My Training Update: It’s summer on the South Shore of Massachusetts & no doubt my favorite time of the year. Highlighted by long days spent with family & friends surfing, diving & doing long distance SUP paddles. This year has been no different with many new bucket list paddles already completed. One of my new favorite paddles leaves from the route 3a bridge in Scituate at Roht Marine going to the route 3 highway bridge near the Pembroke Hanover town line and back. It’s about 13-miles & nearly a 3-hour paddle. Last Saturday, had the west wind bringing the greenheads plus warmer temps complicating the paddle. With a couple miles to go I jumped in the water to cool off and recover. Other notable training paddles have included Cohasset to Scituate a 90-minute harbor to harbor paddle plus a round-trip awe-inspiring Minot Light trip, multiple paddles from Cohasset Harbor to Hull & back and from Bridge street in Nowell to the Scituate spit & back. Thank you for considering a gift to Christopher’s Haven through the CCBC paddle.
