Great Ponte Vedra Paddle Founders at Sunrise Preparing for the Races

Established in 2012, The GREAT PONTE VEDRA PADDLE is one of the largest Stand Up Paddle events of its kind on Florida's east coast. Last year's competition drew an exceptionally fun crowd of nearly 500, including 225 competitors, all for a great cause that helps those with Autism in Northeast Florida.

All proceeds benefit the HEAL Foundation - Healing Every Autistic Life - whose mission is to assist individuals and families living with Autism living in Northeast Florida. HEAL funds educational programs, schools, summer camps and assistance tailored to the needs of those with Autism.
