Hello friends of the sea. Welcome to year three. We are at it again because cancer is a taker and our goal is to give just as much right back. 

What cancer can’t touch is our spirit, our drive and our will to live every day to its fullest potential. A community of people giving back in a very grass roots way. We are not a foundation or a charity - we don’t have red tape. Our goal is a simple one - fill envelopes with donations and get them in the hands of families dealing with cancer. A breath of normalcy for them - thanks to you.


A bit of history for you:

In the spring of 2015, our crew of 6 paddlers took on the challenge of paddling relay style for 24 hours. Our goal was singular: Raise awareness and funds for local families arm wrestling with cancer. The community rallied around us and we raised $5000 and filled 5 envelopes with $1000 each, hand delivered to 5 families  letting them know that they are not alone.

In the spring of 2016 we grew to 7 teams of six paddling across the US and Canada. Collectively we were able to raise $50,000 delivering 50 envelopes to families in the thick of cancer.

On April 15th of this year - Nineteen teams and growing, will once again be paddling from 8 a.m on the 15th until 8 a.m on the 16th.

As one person it is difficult to make a difference - but as a community - we are proving that making a difference is  more than possible - it is a joy.

Our location is once again home based out of Urban Surf on Lake Union. Robin and the crew are awesome. Please make sure to thank them in person.

Please come out, say hello, cheer loud and even better join in for some time on the water!

Looking forward to seeing you the 15th.

Team Seattle.

Hello everyone! We are going strong and paddling hard. One of my favorite things about Gofundme is they are very diligent in making sure you know exactly what is going on with the funds.

As we have been doing our fund raising I have been with withdrawing as we go. Once I get the funds - they are immediately put into envelopes and delivered to our families dealing with cancer.

None of this would be possible with out this community and for that I am so very thankful.

Thank you so much for your support and encouragement.

Hello everyone. Today was a good day. Wanted to let you know that we delivered two envelopes today. The first to a young woman. A multiple time fighter who is having a rough go with this current round. And a family who just learned that dad has an aggressive brain tumor.

Know that your donations are being delivered with care and getting right into the hands of people who need them.
