It’s coming, the 5th Annual ADLER PADDLER.

PADDLERS MUST HAVE PFDs ON BOARD OR PERSON OR LIFEGUARDS COULD PROHIBIT YOU FROM RACING!!

You can pre register on PADDLE GURU

You can reserve a Board & Paddle Rental in exchange for a donation here: SPINLISTER to use the day of the Race. (Limited Number) You can also bring an extra board to the race to add it to the SPINLISTER rental database and your rental fee will be donated straight to the cause!

This is a free race and we’d love to keep it that way.  Last year we had such a great turnout that the city has more than doubled our fees.  However, they have been very accommodating and with the help of  Councilwoman Suzie Price’s office were were able to get a little break on the increase.  We are on the hook for $1836.00 ($1254.00 Permit & Lifeguards + $250 US SAILING CENTER + $332 Liability Insurance)

Last year we were able to donate $6499.00 to the John Ritter Foundation For Aortic Health after expenses. We are hoping to write JRF an even bigger check this year but that’s going to take a huge group effort and we are challenging everyone to help us make it happen!!!

This event isn’t just about raising money for such a great organization but it’s also about encouraging people to understand and gain awareness of their family history.   First-degree relatives (parents, siblings, children) of a person who has, or has had, a thoracic aortic aneurysm and/or dissection can have a higher chance to develop an aneurysm. Our goal as an event is to help prevent premature deaths due to thoracic aortic disease by creating more public awareness of this disease.

Of course this event is also always about coming together as a group of friends, strangers, fellow paddlers, and families to remember our good friend STEVE ADLER and celebrate the sport of Stand Up Paddling.

We are always looking for Volunteers and Raffle Donations so  please contact info@thesupspot.com if you are interested in getting involved!

We’re looking forward to seeing you all there!
