On August 17th approximately 60 paddlers will depart Plymouth Beach at 4:30am to begin the 6th annual Cape Cod Bay Challenge. It will take the paddlers 10-12 hours to make the 34 mile trek across the Bay. Their goal is to raise money and awareness for a wonderful non-profit in Boston called Christopher’s Haven (www.christophershaven.org).
Christopher’s Haven provides housing for families who bring their child to Massachusetts General Hospital and Dana-Farber/Children’s Hospital for cancer treatment. Treatment can last for up to 8 weeks and the burden of finding housing for that period of time in Boston can be financially and emotionally overwhelming. The mission of Christopher’s Haven is to make a tangible difference in the day-to-day lives of these children by creating a home away from home for them while they are in Boston for their treatment.
If you are on Cape Cod on August 17th, feel free to come down to Wellfleet Harbor to support our paddlers and to attend the awesome fundraiser that takes place after the paddlers finish the 34 mile paddle marathon. If you can’t make the event and are interested in supporting our cause, you can donate to Christopher’s Haven directly at –http://www.christophershaven.org/donate/.
