Goal $1,000.00

$0.00Raised

Giving back by doing something that i love to do seemed to be a no brainer. SEA Paddle is a race around Manhattan to raise money to support children with autism and the environment. When i was asked to join the Clif Bar team, i had to jump at the opportunity.

Just a few statistics:

In April of 2018 the CDC released new data that states 1 in 59 children have autism. That to me is an eye opening number. Every day approximately 251 babies are born per minute worldwide, that is around 361,000 a day. While i am not a mathematician, i can tell that a lot of children can use our help.

While we are racing around NYC in rivers, we are also trying to raise money for all of our water ways. SEA is an organization that was founded to protect our oceans, beaches, and coastlines.  You do not have to be a surfer, or a paddleboarder in order to enjoy the water, why not help preserve our ocean planet? It is rare to find a person that does not enjoy being close to the salt water that surrounds us all. 

Putting this all together is very interesting. While SEA and Autism are two very different charities, there have been studies that find that the ocean has healing properties for people with Autism(and more). I read an article a while ago that had this all backed with scientific evidence. The ocean heals, and it needs our help to keep it safe. 

The more people helping our children, and our oceans, the better. Volunteer, donate, educate others, or be a maniac and paddle around manhattan to help spread the word. We can all make a difference.
