Watermans Paddle for Humanity Will Have 5 Stops in 2012

The Watermans Applied Science Paddle for Humanity has started back in 2009 as a grass roots paddling event, but has evolved into one of the largest national paddling series in the US. The Watermans Applied Science Paddle for Humanity represents a series of fund raising events intended to support the charity work of several organizations which are involved in humanitarian, environmental and regional cause projects in an effort to make the world a better place for everyone.

In 2011, the Watermans Applied Science Paddle for Humanity has been awarded the “Philanthropic Event of the Year” title by SUP Magazine at the first annual SUP awards.

This year the event organizers aim to raise $100,000.00 to support the work of their partner charity organizations. That is why the series of Paddle for Humanity events has expanded to five stops in2012. There were only three events in 2011, but the growing popularity of the competition and of SUP discipline demanded more for this year.

The Paddle for Humanity events are open to all water sports enthusiasts, regardless of their age and skill. The series is open to traditional paddleboard, Stand Up Paddling (SUP), Outrigger Canoes, OC-1, OC-2, Kayaking, rec and specialty regional divisions.
