SUP the Coast

Beginning this March, some friends of CGB (Will Rich and Mike Simpson) are embarking from Key West, Florida and paddling along the Eastern Seaboard on their stand-up paddleboards towards their final destination: Portland, Maine.

“We’re combining our passions for paddling, people, and the ocean while fulfilling a dream of seeing the East coast from the water,” says Will Rich.

More than just a spring adventure, Will and Mike hope to spread awareness and raise money for two specific causes:

- Wounded Warrior Project, a national organization which supports America’s service men and women, particularly upon their return from duty.

- SUP Clean-Up, a world-wide organization based in North Carolina that educates people about the well-being of our marine eco-systems on which we so closely depend.

Why not consider donating money or your time to either of these prolific non-profits?

And don't forget - It takes money to paddle the coast. Help Will and Mike achieve their goal by donating to their cause, or purchasing from their “wish list” of necessary items.

You can also track their progress by visiting their website, blog or Facebook page.

Ran into these guys on K O A at sugar loafe Key . Battle the Easterly Trades standing up must not be fun. They seem to like camping under picknic tables at night. Best of Luck
