Hi. My name is Nate Dirvin and I am a School Counselor and proud member of the Wildwood Beach Patrol. As an outlet to work through some personal struggles, I decided to start endurance paddling a few years back.
After hearing of a "Paddle for a Cause" it hit on a further personal note for me as I have had friends and family who have struggled (won and lost the battle) with cancer. This is certainly an important cause due to what a devastating effect this disease can have on not only those suffering from it but their loved ones as well.
For this reason, I will be attempting to prone paddle 22.5 miles again around Atlantic City to support the Dean Randazzo Cancer Foundation in honor of those struggling. This race is for those that have passed as well, kept close in my heart as I paddle.
Anything you can contribute will be greatly appreciated and goes to a very worthwhile cause!
