101 Surf Sports Stand Up Paddleboarding and Kayaking on San Francisco Bay

Help swim across america with your kayak or Stand up paddleboard

Every once in a while you get to mix the thing you love to do with a good cause. This is one of those times. Grab that paddle and come help the Children's Hospital of Oakland by way of Kayak or Stand Up Paddleboard. 

Here's how it works. The group is running a fundraiser called Swim Across America that will see over 200 swimmers plying the waters of San Francisco Bay to help raise money for the Children's Hospital of Oakland.  And to help keep these swimmers safe volunteer kayakers and stand up paddleboarders are needed to chaperone the swimmers in the water. Due to the rougher waters more experienced/advanced paddlers are needed. 

The event is set for the early morning hours of September 27th so if you are in here's what you do. Call Jeanne Marquis at (510) 428-3814 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

From time to time we also get opportunities to do the same for other events; the Escape from Alcatraz Triathalon for example. The best way to stay in the loop on this, and other opportunities is to sign up for our newsletter

Thanks ahead of time for any help you can give and please do forward on to friends who may be interested.
