Lisa and Cameron Benson - The Friendship Paddle 2019

The Friendship Paddle

It is impossible to overstate how significant The Friendship Paddle has been for our family. The love, support, and encouragement we received from friends, family and the entire Friendship Paddle community has been transformational for us. We are deeply grateful to be part of this community, and we will never forget our experience.

This year, it is our honor to paddle in support of Mike Kelley, his wife Pat, and his children Blake and Reese. At sunrise on September 15th, we will join over 150 paddlers in the water off Forney's Cove on Santa Cruz Island, and paddle approximately 27 miles across the Santa Barbara Channel to the celebration on the beach in front of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club.

Please consider helping us help Mike and his family by making a contribution to the 2019 Friendship Paddle.

With love and thanks,

Cameron and Lisa
