Goal $1,000.00


Thank you for supporting SEA Paddle NYC and all its beneficiaries. After missing a few years, I'm headed back to paddle around New York City to help raise $ for Surfer's Healing and the Surfers Environmental Alliance. This time, I'm bring my 5-year old daughter who's never seen the city and who wasn't even born when we paddled the first two times. 

Some background: I lived in NYC between 1993 and 2005. The city formed much of what I am today, how I choose to live, how I treat the memories of those lost. Being able to go back on my own terms, on the water and on a paddleboard, re-frames some of the experiences I had there and does it in a way that allows me to bring joy to kids with Autism and their families and supports our need for clean air and water.

I can't wait. I'll be training hard. 

If each of you could give $10, we'll reach the $1000 goal. Every dollar counts. Thank you for your support of autism charities and clean air and water. It's up to us on the ground level to do what we can each day. Don't be a bystander. Life's too short to wait for others to fix things.
