12 mile Kayak, SUP, Surf Ski paddle around El Radabob.

4 mile fun family friendly paddle.

Both courses are open to kayakers, paddle boarders, and surf skis. As this is a fundraising event, each participant is encouraged to set a personal fundraising goal of 20 individual sponsorships of $1.00 per mile.  Registration is required.

All proceeds benefit Team River Runner, in bringing our Wounded Veterans to Key Largo.

Team River Runner (TRR), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, gives active duty servicemembers and veterans an opportunity to find health, healing, and new challenges through whitewater boating and other paddling sports.

The El Radabob Warrior Challenge will be held May 17, 2014.  The goal of this family friendly, community event is to provide financial assistance to Team River Runner, a 501c3 non-profit organization that brings Wounded Veterans to Key Largo every winter for a week of adaptive paddling and healing. The cost to bring one Wounded Veteran is $1500.00. Due to lack of funding, this year's program was cancelled. The Key Largo Veterans Program is one of only a handful of programs of its kind in the country. If we, as a community, do not join forces to help support this program, it will be terminated indefinitely. All proceeds from the El Radabob Warrior Challenge benefit the Key Largo Veterans Program.

    Why are we starting at 6:30 and other groups are starting at 8:00, like Paradise paddlers and peddlers, they start at 8:00. I might have to go with them cause for me to be there by 6:30 from Fort Lauderdale I have to wake up at 4:00am.

      Nikki, will race participants need to pay an entrance fee to get into Pennekamp?

      No they will have to say they are with the El Radabob Warrior Challenge. Parking is pretty limited, so if carpooling is available, it would be greatly appreciated.
