The 2018 Monster & Sea 24hr Paddle: MORRO BAY 4/14/18 - 4/15/18

We're at it again!!

This year on April 14th, we're starting the 24hr paddle at Coleman Beach at 0800. We'll paddle all day, through the night, and into the morning to finish at 0800 on the 15th. We have set a goal to help six families on the Central Coast.


Last year our Morro Bay Paddle Team surpassed our $6000 goal by raising $7000 with the help of several generous donors! We were able to help seven local Central Coast families struggling with cancer. We delivered an envelopes containing $1000 each to SEVEN families! All donations stay local.

A little history...

About three 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 the M&S siteInstagram , see it on Facebook …it’s real, live and happening every day.

Last year, starting at 0800 on April 15th and ending at 0800 on April 16th, 22 paddle teams of 6 paddlers, simultaneously embarked on a 24hr paddle in various parts of North America. Seattle and 21 satellite locations including Morro Bay, Santa Cruz, Newport Beach, Vancouver & Ontario Canada, Cayman Islands, and many others hosted the 24hr paddle and raised $145,000! That's 145 envelopes going to 145 families struggling with cancer!!!

This year there will be many more - six person - paddle teams across the North America and other parts of the globe.

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.

Mahalo,

Special update:
Here’s a shot from today’s home improvement operation by local “Good Guys”. Funded by the “pay it forward” goodness of Monster and Sea “24” Team Morro Bay envelope recipient #10, the “Good Guys” construction team donated their time and skills to improve a special home. Two young brothers had inherited their childhood home after their mother had passed a year ago from cancer. Materials were purchased with funds from envelope #10. The original recipient paid the $1k forward to help another family affected by cancer. The home is a work in progress as some drywall, cabinet, and a few other tasks are slated in the next few weeks. Goodness in motion!
The “Good Guys” in action...
