I want to dedicate Paddle Around the Bay to three organizations that have made a profound impact in my life. I am funding the paddle through personal funds and sponsorships. I hope that people will be inspired to donate to these organizations. My goal is to fund raise $4,000 for each of these organizations. Every mile of the paddle will mean $40 and it will take 300 people to fund the entire paddle.
