Stand Up for the Cure

Nearly 500 paddlers turned Lake Muskegon into a sea of pink to help find the cure for breast cancer.

If you aren’t familiar with the Susan G. Komen Organization, their mission is “To save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering others, ensuring quality care for all and investing in science to find the cures.”

Stand Up for the Cure has raised over $500,000

The Michigan event raised nearly $14,000 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure and overall, Stand Up for a Cure has raised over $500,000 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

When you look at these photos, look at the boards, the paddles and the people who helped make this event and others in the Stand Up for the Cure series so successful. These are the companies and people who are using the sport of stand up paddling to change lives, to change the world.

Awesome Results Board: It’s about Raising Funds

This is an amazing model. Paddlers compete for fundraising, use their connections, family and friends, to help find the cure for breast cancer.
