Goal $1,000.00


This will be the 3rd time I take on this challenging Journey around NYC.  

To finish is a privilege.

To know you have helped a family is a reward beyond explanation.

I  try to comprehend the scope of what families with autism must endure... it is unfathomable. 

I watch these children in the surf...  they are gleeful, enjoying the feel of the clean water; forgetting themselves for a brief time.  I watch their parents.  Their happieness gives me the courage to take on this taxing, yet wonderful journey.


Please consider supporting this incredible event.

Thank you for supporting SEA Paddle NYC and all its beneficiaries.
