It’s no secret that Mother Nature can help heal.  Add in movement or exercise and the benefits grow.  New studies have shown that outdoor activity can aid in recovery from disease, reduction of stress, increases in concentration, and improve overall health and well being.

BIC Sup’s powerhouse ambassador, Casi Rynkowski, is taking that study to a whole new level with her Paddle for Recovery program, helping cancer patients and their caregivers get out on the water to feel the healing effects of Mother Nature.

Paddle for Recovery, sponsored by BIC Sup, is designed to support the recovery process in cancer patients.

Paddle for Recovery is a FREE standup paddle class for recovering cancer patients and a friend or family member who supported them through treatment.  As many of us know, cancer – when it strikes – can have devastating effects on both the individual as well as their family.  Casi Rynkowski, BIC Sup ambassador, knows from her own personal experience how families, friends, and acquaintances take on this disease and how it can impact lives forever.

Paddle for Recovery is Casi’s personal mission to provide opportunities to individuals undergoing treatment and their caregivers to escape on to the water and -she hopes – to bring them to a new passion that can assist in the individual’s daily recovery.

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
