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, landing on the beach in front of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club in support of Mike Kelley and his family. I made this journey last year for the first time. I had the honor of paddling for my life long friend Cameron Benson, and the impact was tremendous - for myself and in being a part of the larger effort. I'm doing this again to gain that personal growth, in honor of the organization, my buddy Cam, and now for Mike. Please help me with any support you can offer. Good vibes, best wishes, or sponsorship of my paddle....We are open arms. Humble Thanks.
