The 4th annual Beyond the Paddle is happening this Saturday, May 9th at the Virginia Beach Hotel and Conference Center. The event hopes to bring awareness, prevention, and support to the community as while remembering the lives that have been affected by Cancer. The FUNdraiser kicks off at 9am on Saturday with a paddle race, waterpark relay, beach walk, and fun flotilla. Afterwards there is an after party at Hot Tuna featuring live music and an amazing raffle. Proceeds will be divided into three charities, Janice Capps Scholarship Foundation, CHKD, and Beyond Boobs. Help us fight cancer while having a blast on the beach.
A message from one of last year’s volunteers:
What was your favorite part about the event?
Watching the paddle boarders run up the beach around the flag and the back to the paddleboard.
What was the most interesting thing, you thought from the event?
The event was not just paddleboard racers, but also surfboard paddling, kayaks, several teams, and walkers.
What’s your advice for everyone participating in this year’s event?
Come early so the volunteers can help you unload your boards and find easy parking. Make sure you bring sunscreen and a hat, it’s going to be a beautiful day.
