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.  

This year will mark my third Friendship Paddle, and I'm just as excited and humbled to be participating now as I was when my dear friend Genny was the honoree of this unparalleled outpouring of love and support. Now we cross the Channel for Mike Kelley, navigating the open ocean in solidarity with he and his family, as they navigate his fight against cancer. Please help me help Mike by making a donation, and thank you. –Shelly
