Watermans Paddle for Humanity 2015

The Watermanʼs Paddle for Humanity
Founded in 2009, the Paddle for Humanity (PFH) is a grass root paddling event series with the stated purpose of bring the paddling community together to support a common cause. Over the past four years the PFH has raised thousands of dollars for its non-profit partners and grown into the Nation’s largest bi-coastal event series.

Community has always been the keystone of the WPFH and the success of the series is  measured by the ability to bring the paddling community together to raise awareness and funds for causes we believe in. 

Pre-registration is $50/one event or $60/two events per person. You can also register in-person at our Pre-Party Friday, June 20 from 5pm-8pm at Sabine Sandbar . One mile Kids event $25 per child.  Credit card, cash or check payable to FITNESS ONBOARD™.
