Paddle With Purpose - Jodie Nelson

Paddle with Purpose is a solo 39.8 mile stand up paddle from Catalina to Dana Point on March 28th 2010. The paddle will benefit Keep A Breast Foundation and Boarding for Breast Cancer. This is a paddle usually done in teams, however, Jodie Nelson will attempt it solo this year. A feat only 3 men have ever tackeled, Laird Hamilton being one.

If you'd like to donate to the cause or find out more about it, visit Paddle With Purpose.

"To me it almost had nothing to do with the paddle, but it had everything to do with setting out to accomplish something that was super intimidating, that was unknown to me, something I knew I had a good chance of failing at, but then going ahead and doing it anyways, and slowly but surely proving myself wrong."

- Jodie Nelson after finishing last year's crossing as a pair with Bridgett Saemon.
