Looking back at 9 years of making a difference with the SEA Paddle NYC

In less than a month, Surfers’ Environmental Alliance will be running the 10th annual SEA Paddle NYC, a 26-mile paddle around Manhattan, from the Hudson River, to the Harlem River and finishing up on the East River. Here is an amazing infographic showcasing the impact of the 978 incredible paddlers who’ve paddled around Manhattan since 2007.

Some highlights include:

  • $2.36 Million raised from people just like you
  • > 45,000 children with autism and their families served
  • 232 non-profit initiatives supported
  • 2 miles of dunes restored
  • 300,000 beach culms planted
  • 10 environmental scholarships given
  • And countless waves saved by collaboratively working with the Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Environmental Protection

If you have the miles and the desire to do something truly extraordinary, sign up. I’ve done this race twice and can say it was one of the most fulfilling quests on Earth. I still think about sitting in the lee of the Brooklyn Bridge, surrounded by paddlers, waiting for the horn and thinking that I was witnessing something—a perspective—that few people get to experience.

For more information and to register, go to the SEA website: http://seapaddlenyc.org/

And if you have questions about the race, comment. We know a ton of people who have paddled and who are paddling this year.
