Ron Takeda- The Friendship Paddle 2019

Supporting Mike Kelley Learn More

The Friendship Paddle

Please join me in supporting a friend and local Santa Barbarian Mike Kelley in his fight against cancer.  On September 15th we will paddle across the Santa Barbara Channel from the west end of Santa Cruz Island to the Santa Barbara Yacht Club on Ledbetter beach in support of Mike.  I will personally thank each person from my paddle board, mid channel, who joins me in supporting Mike.  All paddlers pay their own expenses so 100% of donations go directly to the beneficiary.
