Paddle for the Planet with Bob Purdy

On January the 1st 2011 the renowned waterman Bob Purdy of Paddle for the Planet started an amazing journey. He set out to paddle every single day of the year in order to raise awareness for the care of Planet Earth.

During the 365 days of 2001 neither rain, nor snow or scorching sun managed to stop Bob Purdy from competing his journey. He paddled every day hoping for a better future of Planet Earth.

Now that his journey is over, Bob Purdy is decided to continue his work and paddle every single day in 2012. He has decided to paddle for 730 consecutive days. His effort is still aimed to “Change the Way I Live on the Planet” as he stated.

Bob Purdy will also organize the “World Paddle for the Planet Day” on the 16th of June 2012, an event which is intended to raise funds for the David Suzuki Foundation and support its projects.

Bob Purdy is supported in his journey by major brands in water sports industry like Naish, O’Neill, OK Sup and more.

You can also help Bob Purdy in his journey by making a donation on the  Paddle for the Planet website and by participating at the “World Paddle for the Planet Day” event.

We congratulate Bob for his initiative and we hope that his project will succeed.
