This post is for all my SUP friends – and especially for those who haven’t added that amazing sport to life, just yet.  This is an open invitation to join me on November 12 at Standup for the Cure in Miami, FL.  Survivor or supporter, when you stand tall on your paddleboard surrounded by a sea of pink, lead by the energy of Zane Schweitzer, Shawneen Schweitzer, Judie Vivian and hundreds of smiling paddlers you will be immersed in an awesome adventure.

Life is an adventure – and like all adventures there are moments that require every ounce of courage, hope, and the healing support of friends and family.

When life throws in a challenge like cancer, each day asks for laughter, love and strength – along with the best treatment possible. A combination of research and screening, awareness and information are powerful tools we are so fortunate to access.

When dedicated and passionate people come together we have the treasure of events we can experience together, events like the far-reaching Standup for the Cure.  They have raised over $600,000. For each $125 raised by fundraising teams a mammogram is shared to someone in need – early detection and awareness make so much difference.  I was incredibly fortunate to have had early detection of the very rare cancer I experienced, and am ever grateful to the researchers and surgeon who had the knowledge and experience to guide my outcome.

Life IS truly an adventure. I am pleased to share a FREE download of our P2SUP album, “Paddle with Courage” to all participants in Standup for the Cure – or to anyone who feels a need for some mindful presence, for inspired and guided meditation. CONTACT me for more information.

Join our fundraising team. (Do It for Meg) – but most of all join with friends and family on November 12 at Miami Yacht Club and paddle with me or just enjoy the day.  CONTACT me if you have questions, comments, a story to share – we welcome you to the P2SUP community.
