- "Camp was the experience I needed after cancer. It was a way to be on even levels with people that share the same struggles/experience in life and be able to just have fun and not be the outcast in certain situations." – Lakeshow
Paddle for Privates
October 27, 2012
Help fight "private part" cancers by paddling around Newport Harbor in costume with all of your friends! We will be having lunch on the paddle route, then a big beach party festival after the paddle with live music, beach dancing, bar, charity and sponsor expo and costume/fundraising awards!
This is a costume paddle parade (not a race). Paddle anything you like (SUPs, kayaks, canoes, dragon boats, build a boat)... As long as it's human-powered and withouth an engine. If you didn't read earlier...THIS IS A COSTUME PADDLE EVENT. Dress for the theme or wear your Halloween costume!
Stand Up Paddleboards and paddles are available (thanks to our SUP sponsors) to borrow on a first come, first served basis. Reserve through on-site registration.
