Bob Purdy’s Paddle for the Planet keeps on truckin along… Today (October 12, 2012) marks his 651st consecutive day on the water!
For 2012, Bob is planning an even bigger follow up with World Paddle for the Planet Day, with the main event scheduled for Lake Powell near Panama City in Florida!
And be sure to check out Bob’s interview with Leslie at supradioshow.com!
Here’s the word from Bob…
Bob Purdy from “Paddle for the Planet” and Leslie Kolovich from the “SUP Radio Show” are pleased to announce “World Paddle for the Planet Day 2013”!
Once again we will be inviting paddlers around the Planet to paddle for the change they would like to see in 2013! It’s easy, wherever you are in the World, pick a change you would like to see environmentally, socially or economically. Paddle for that change on “World Paddle for the Planet Day” and then commit to it until it becomes reality! Last year’s paddle generated a lot of changes for the Planet, everything from banning plastic bottles in a kayak touring company, to Beach cleanups, to a SUP instructor course to share the SUP stoke, to donations made to the “David Suzuki Foundation”.
You are also invited to join Bob for his personal paddle that Leslie will be hosting on Lake Powell near Panama City Beach in Florida. Bob will paddle for 24 hours straight beginning at noon on October 12th! Paddle all 24 hours, or create a relay team to help us send a “SUP Wave of Change around the World”!
In addition to the 24 hour paddle, Bob and Leslie have created a summit of the World’s top “Planet Paddlers” and “Planet Changers” over the weekend of October 10-13th, 2013. These are people who are really making a difference and influencing change in the World. The summit will create a forum to discuss ways to come together and send a stronger message of change to benefit the Planet. Many of these amazing people have projects that are inspirational and will be showcased during the expo to be held the same weekend! The summit and expo will be a great way to get motivated and discover ways to “Change the Way we live on the Planet”! Come and get inspired!
Dr. David Suzuki has done a lot to “Change the Way we live on the Planet”. Again this year you can donate to the “Foundation” that bears his name, just visit www.paddlefortheplanet.ca and find the donate link. Our target is $100,000 and every penny you donate will go to the “David Suzuki Foundation”!
We would love to see you in Florida October 10-13th! If you are not able to make it there, plan an event in your part of the World! One person is the difference, stand up and be that person! Together we can send a “SUP Wave of Change around the World”!…
