The 4th Annual Paddle for Prevention is an event to expose people to paddle boarding and show how therapeutic the water can be. Paddle out with the community, connect with others, and embrace the healing qualities of the Gulf. Try paddle boarding for the first time or paddle for the cause! This is not a race - just a fun day on the water with your community. There is a Team Race though at 11 to end the event. Schedule for the day and more info below.
Boards will be provided by YOLO Board & Adventure 30A. Participants are encouraged to bring their own boards too.
Any registrant who raises $100 or more will receive a free Paddle for Prevention t-shirt. We will have information tables setup on the beach, top sponsor tents and a great raffle for a chance to win amazing prizes.
