SSI SUP Challenge Poster
Davis Love, III’s Paddle & Putt has co-hosted the Golden Isles Stand-Up Paddleboarding Classic for the past three years. For 2013 the event has changed to the “Saint Simons Island SUP Challenge,” with Paddle & Putt being the sole host for the race. This event is the largest and most widely attended paddleboard race in Georgia and continues to grow in popularity and participants each year. There will be a demo day on October 25 and the SUP races will take place on October 26.
This year's event promises to be the biggest and best yet. There's electronic timing, the addition of a 4 person relay, and prize money too! There's also a raffle, registration dinner and awards ceremony. There are even races for kids and dogs on board too! But most importantly, this is all for a great cause.
Each year, a charity is been selected to receive 100% of the net proceeds through generous Corporate and small business contributions, donations, registration fees and the yearly raffle. The 2013 Beneficiary is the “CURE for Childhood Cancer.” The “CURE” is a Georgia based, nonprofit 501(c) 3 Organization dedicated to conquering childhood cancer through funding targeted research and through support of patients and their families. More information on CURE can be found at curechildhoodcancer.org. For full event information, visit saintsimonsislandsupchallenge.com
