Beat Cancer with a Paddle

Sean and I are teaming up to help beat cancer with a Paddle.  The Second Annual Paddle for The Cure is scheduled for Saturday April 24, 2010. Set against the skyline of beautiful downtown Tampa, the kayak, paddle craft and paddle board race and family fun paddle will raise money for cancer research.

Launching from scenic Riverfront Park in downtown Tampa on the Hillsborough River there will be two events. The first is a 5 mile race from Riverfront Park down river into Seddon Channel to Marjorie Park at Davis Islands and back with an extension into Ybor Channel and past Tampa General Hospital. The second race is a 2 mile family fun paddle from Riverfront Park to the Convention Center and back.

Last season’s race was a HUGE success, with 160 paddlers helping raise more than $40,000 for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. This year’s proceeds from the event will again benefit the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.

We encourage everyone to register for the race and to seek sponsorships from friends, family and coworkers. No prior paddling experience is needed and rental boats will be available for those without a kayak. Come out, have fun and help Beat Cancer With A Paddle!

  1. See Naples Fl. by boat, the way it was meant to be seen. Check outwaterways and sandy beaches at your own speed by renting your own private boat. We accomidate rentals for two hours, half day, and even full day. View the multi-million dollar homes, enjoy private beaches, or watch the local wildlife in their natural surroundings. You can even cruise up to one of the numerous waterfront restaurants for lunch.

    Brookside Marina Boat Rentals can supply a wide variety of boats for 1 to 11 passengers. To have sun protection for family and friends, all of our boats offer large biminis. All boats come equipped with a full color chart of the waterways, and we provide training for those who need it. Your safety is our main priority, so we have life jackets for all sizes, and all boats are supplied with the necessary safety equipment, as required by the US Coast Guard.
