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. I personally know Mike from my time training at Platinum Fitness. He was apart of a group of guys much older than me at the time but it was a group of guys who still loved to get after it. Mike was an animal in the gym and always had words of wisdom for my 20 something year old self. He always had the time of day to hangout and chat for hours after the workout whether it be sports, fishing, surfing, or just to talk story. I am really looking forward to this years paddle for Mike Kelley and hope that you can help the cause in supporting him, and his family. Thank you!!
