EVENT DATE: Jul 11, 2015
"Have Fun and Save Lives"!! Join us for a fun day Standup Paddling (SUP) together at Harbour Towne Beach, Muskegon, Michigan in support of the local Affiliate of Susan G Komen.
UPDATE - July 9, 2015 - ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSED! We have been happily overwhelmed with your generosity and enthusiasm Muskegon but at this point we're sold out of pink standup jerseys and goodie bags so we have opted to close online registration.
Walk up Registration will still be open at 8:00 am Saturday Morning and we will be able to provide you with the official wrist band that entitles you to lunch, beer and wine garden, paddling, breast cancer screening and all our festivities during the day! All we ask is that you bring your patience and sport a smile.
And our on-line donation site is still live! Please consider donating directly or to your favorite local team to help us fund breast cancer screening for women in need in West Michigan. Every dollar helps us save lives!
Congratulations Muskegon for hosting the biggest standup paddleboard event in the Midwest, and one of the top 5 biggest events in the Country!
