Period: Jun 15 - Jun 15, 2013
Location: Various locations, United States

The 2nd annual National SUP Day is brought to you by NEXT Swimwear, a brand which integrates swim, fitness, and fashion into their products. This event is organized in collaboration with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and will celebrate the sport of stand up paddling, but also raise awareness of the health benefits the sport provides young people who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis.

The National SUP Day is celebrated by SUP events taking place in Chicago; Austin; San Diego, Newport Beach, Calif.; Palm Beach, Fla.; Clinton, Conn.; Brick, N.J.; and Grand Haven, Mich. During these events, pro and dedicated riders will free clinics for children afflicted with CF. These events are free and open to everyone.

Here is what Lisa Vogel, president of NEXT Swimwear, says: “Year two of National SUP Day has grown from five events to eight events, and we know that others are going to pop-up on that day. The event really is more of a nationwide day of celebration, and we’re excited to work side-by-side with CFF to raise awareness of their cause while we all enjoy SUP!”

The National SUP Day takes place on the 15th of June. To find out more about the events taking place on this day, please visit the official website.
