Mike Kelley has been my close and loved friend since our high school days. Mike is a super guy, an awesome friend, and he's battling mesothelioma. I am joining his many friends to participate in The Friendship Paddle in support of Mike and his family. On September 15, 2019 I will be on one of many teams of paddlers that will paddle approximately 25 miles across the Santa Barbara Channel. Along with the funds we are able to raise for Mike and his family, I hope the love and support we give Mike will help him stay strong and beat this illness.


The Friendship Paddle

On September 15th over 150 paddlers will start at sunrise in Forney's Cove on Santa Cruz Island and paddle the Santa Barbara Channel and land on the beach in front of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club in support of Mike Kelley and his family.
