RI Paddle Boarders Help Good Causes


Over the next few days, Rhode Island is hosting not one but two major stand-up paddle boarding events, according to an article on ProvidenceJournal.com.

On Saturday, August 29, 2015, the 10th Annual Block Island Challenge will send competitors on an 18-mile trek between Montauk, Long Island, and Block Island. A day later, the 2nd Annual Providence Paddle Battle will make waves in and around Providence Harbor.

Between them, the two events will feature more than 150 paddle boarders. They’re also expected to raise thousands of dollars for worthy causes, including special-needs education (Block Island) and coastal clean-up and protection (Providence).
