Perhaps you could remind folks about the Friendship Paddle on Saturday, Sept. 24th, 2011 benefiting LA County Lifeguard and Santa Barbara Fire Department Captain Mike Moses. Paddlers from LA and SB Fire Departments, and LACo Lifeguards, among others, will cross the Santa Barbara Channel this Saturday.

As you know, Mike has developed a rare form of cancer: multiple myeloma.


This summer was the first time in 34 years that Mike has not guarded the Northern Section beaches, or protected the SB community. Instead, he is facing bone marrow transplants and chemotherapy in this battle.

If folks want to donate, they can use the link below and 100% of the money raised will go to Mike and his family.




About "The Friendship Paddle":

The Friendship Paddle was created around the love of the ocean. Mike is a true waterman and exemplifies an ocean lifestyle to the fullest. Lifeguarding, paddle boarding, surfing, free-diving, and fishing are not just things he does, they are things that define who he is. Now, at the age of 53, Mike has developed a rare form of cancer, multiple myeloma. 2011 is the first summer in 34 years that Mike has not guarded the beaches surrounding Malibu. Instead, he is facing bone marrow transplants and chemotherapy.

His passion for the water and commitment to his community is a natural fit for The Friendship Paddle and with our support Mike and his family will not be fighting alone. We stand as a small portion of the community Mike has supported his entire adult life and TFP will support him and his family by raising funds and paddling the SB Channel on September 24th.


Many Thanks to Adam Sandler for the heads up on this event. We've also communicated with John McFadden with The Friendship Paddle and they are very excited to have the attention and participation of our Lifeguard group.


Until next time.....
