The 2017 Monster & Sea 24hr Paddle: MORRO BAY 4/15 - 4/16

We're at it again!!

This year on April 15th, we're starting the 24hr paddle at Coleman Beach at 0800. We'll paddle all day, through the night, and into the early morning to finish at 0800 on the 16th. We have set a goal to help six families on the Central Coast.

Last year our Morro Bay Paddle Team met our $4000 goal with the help of several generous donors! We were able to help four local Central Coast families struggling with cancer. We delivered an envelope with $1000 to four families!  All donations stay local.

A little history...

About two years ago, a team of six stand up paddlers from the Pacific Northwest set out on a benevolent mission…their goal, to raise money for families dealing with cancer. Medical expenses are not the only burden a family has to bear when cancer rears it’s terrible head. Expenses from travel back and forth to appointments and treatments, food and lodging near specialty centers, childcare, loss of work and income…the list alone is overwhelming.

With the support of their community, the six paddlers delivered seven envelopes to seven families dealing with cancer. Each envelope contained two things: $1000 and a short note in a card. You may ask how does one deliver an envelope filled with $1000 to someone they may have never even met? As Troy Nebeker, founder of Monster & Sea and the M&S 24hr paddle describes,“Very simple. A knock on the door, slide it under and walk away. The card inside tells the story…it reads,“There is a community of people who are fighting for you. Our hope is this will give you a moment of peace in this crazy time.” - Lots of love from the Monster and Sea community.
Troy Nebeker, a man with many talents and a heart filled with goodness has gathered the paddling community together to go because we can, and give because we can. Troy started Monster & Sea, an ocean and paddleboard centered apparel company that donates money through sales to families dealing with cancer. Troy and his family have been in the trenches and on the frontline of the cancer battlefield but were able to find strength and healing through the sea. The Monster & Sea battle cry is #GoBecauseYouCan. Google it, check it on Instagram, see it on Facebook…it’s real, live and happening every day.

Last year,  0800 on March 26th and ending at 0800 on March 27th, 7 paddle teams of 6 paddlers, simultaneously embarked on a 24hr paddle in various parts of North America. Seattle and six satellite locations including Vancouver, Newport, Ontario, Idaho, North Carolina, and here in Morro Bay each hosted the 24hr paddle and raised $50,000! That's 50 envelopes going to 50 families!!!
 
This year there will be 14 - six person - paddle teams across the United States and Canada. 

Each location will have three rotating two-person paddle crews throughout the day, night, and into next the morning. They will paddle in solidarity to help some warriors realize they are not alone in their battle.

Cancer, we are here and we won’t back down…ever.

Please assist us in helping others.

Respectfully,

Teddy Borja
