Phil Boise - The Friendship Paddle 2019

For love of family.... Learn More

Howdy friends and family

Once again we will paddle the channel.

I do this for Ellen, for Christina, for Tavis and I, for me...but mostly to give back to the Friendship Paddle community which has provided such deep emotional and financial support to my family and to others.

I know I ask every year and, knock on wood, I will continue asking every year….but as with paddling it takes a whole lot of small strokes to move us across great oceans.

If you can find some cash to send towards The Friendship Paddle family we all will be grateful to you.

Please pass this along to others interested. 

Very much obliged to you, Phil

The Friendship Paddle
