Paddling For A Purpose - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Paddling For A Purpose

Posted: Updated:

FENWICK ISLAND, Del. - The paddles were out at Coastal Kayak on Sunday as the company held its fourth annual paddle with a purpose event.

Adventure-seekers heading out on Stand Up Paddle Boards could donate the cost of their rental to three different local charities:
- Marine Education Research and Rehabilitation (MEER)
- The Horseshoe Crab Conservation Fund
- and the Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation.

"We just think its important to support these community organizations," said Jennifer Adams Mitchell, owner of Costal Kayak. "And these charities are smaller charities and lots of times they don't get a lot of press as the larger charities."

Mitchell says Costal Kayak has donated thousands of dollars to local organizations over the years, including the Worcester County Humane society with the "Paddle with the Pooch" event.

They say they plan to keep up the fund raisers, and will announce the next one soon.
