Paddling to Fight Breast Cancer
Apr 01, 2013 02:52PM
The SUP Chicks will be holding a fundraising party/raffle/auction at 6 p.m. on April 20, at the California Surf Museum in Oceanside to raise funds to fight breast cancer. The SUP Chicks is an enthusiastic club of over 400 women and men stand up paddleboarders (SUP). The SUP Chicks’ mission is to provide fun, educational and supportive opportunities for people to get together and paddle. Their mission also includes caring and giving back to the community.
Last year, the SUP Chicks raised over $10,000 (out of a total $60,000) for Stand Up for the Cure. This year’s event will be bigger and better. The event will include raffle opportunities for custom SUP Chicks limited-edition carbon-fiber SUP raceboards. In addition, there will be many auction items including several ocean excursions, a wakeboard excursion, SUP board bags, paddles, ocean art and much, much more.
The proceeds from the event support Standup for the Cure, which is a Susan G. Komen affiliate. Standup for the Cure was awarded the Top Philanthropic Effort of the Year Award by SUP MAGAZINE.
Every $125 raised enables a local woman to have a mammogram (through the Susan G. Komen organization).
