- 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.
Mike and I have been friends for over 35 years, and I can honestly say you will not find a better friend or human being. I am more than happy to help Mike and his family kick cancers ass by participating and raising money for this paddle. Please give as much or as little as you can to help support Mikes daunting medical costs. Thanks for the support, look forward to seeing everyone!!
We organize open ocean paddle events to provide emotional and financial support to Santa Barbara County residents fighting life-threatening illnesses.The Friendship Paddle is 5013c non-profit and 100% of the donations will be going to the honoree.
