Goal $4,000.00


Friends and Family,

I'm back again in NYC this August for another 26 mile journey around the island of Manhattan on a paddleboard for Autism and the environment.  This will be the 5th year in a row for me.  You all have been so important to me with this.  Thanks to you all, I've been able to raise over $10,000 for these awesome charities.   This race has become a huge part of my life every year.   I've met some awesome people along the way, and the friendships I've made, I'll probably carry with me for the rest of my life.   This race has definitely been a life changer.  

So, the reason we all get together under the Brooklyn Bridge on paddleboards every summer is to raise money.   Sure, it's a grueling, hot, 26 mile race in the blazing sun around New York City.  It's exhausting, it's difficult, but it's all for great causes, and you get to see Manhattan in a way most other people will never get the chance to.   100 percent of every dollar raised goes to Autism charities and environmental causes.   Please consider making a donation in my name.   No amount is too small.   Every little bit helps.   Thank you for helping me out with this every year.   I truly appreciate it and so do all the kids this money helps out. 





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