More Details:

People Paddle is designed to allow not-for-profit organizations recruit paddlers who will "champion" their cause. The paddling "champions" register to paddle and to select a not-for-profit for which to raise pledges online. Catalyst for Youth, our host organization, retains 15% to cover event expenses and additional liability insurance, then sends 85% of pledges to the championed not-for-profits after the event. This list is subject to change at any time solely at the discretion of the event management. Environmental agencies currently listed as eligible to receive funds from People Paddle for the Planet include:
Catalyst for Youth
4-H of San Mateo County
Acterra Action for a Sustainable Earth

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
