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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in getting involved!
We’re looking forward to seeing you all there!

The 3rd Annual ADLER PADDLER will be on St. Patricks Day once again. This year we are adding the option to do a long course or a short course. The long course will be 5.6 miles (two laps around Naples). The short course will be the same one lap that we have done the past two years, which is 2.8 miles. Because of the notorious bad weather the past two years we have rented space at the US SAILING CENTER which is just north of Leeway Beach. If the weather is bad we will be handling race check in inside the facility as well as the post race raffle. Look for us to be set up closer to the south just North of the US SAILING CENTER.

Paddle With Purpose Nominated for Top Philanthropic Effort at the 2012 SUP awards. Voting ends SEPT 5th!
On August 10th Dave Cornthwite set out to swim 1000 miles between Chamberlain, South Dakota and St Louis, Missouri. Dave will be towing all of his gear with him on a carbon fibre raft and he will be escorted by a support team of 6 Stand Up Paddlers that will do the entire trek by his side. Paddle with Purpose had the pleasure of meeting Dave during the Trestles to TJ paddle. On that paddle we learned about the journey that Dave and his team was about to take on. Dave’s mission is perfectly aligned with Paddle With Purpose’s mission statement and we wanted to support Dave and Team as we are all hoping to help the group raise 100,000 pounds for UK-based breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel! 50 days, 20 miles a day. 1 man swimming 1000 miles, 6 people paddling 1000 miles. Stay tuned for updates on Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube from beginning to end.
Paddle With Purpose is helping to supply Dave with Swim Caps, we pledge to help spread the word, and we are contributing funds to help the team with their social media push. Please help us spread the word in getting the team to their fundraising goal! Paddle With Purpose will join Dave towards the end of his journey the end of September to see him to the finish line! GO DAVE GO! Did we mention that the Missouri River is one of the dirtiest stretches of river in North America? Let’s hope he can stay strong and healthy along the way!
