Paddle4Good's PaddleTogether program bring the special needs, volunteer, & paddling communities together for a free, safe, amazing, half-day on the water!
With safety and inclusion as our primary goals - participants have the opportunity to safely stand up paddle (SUP), kayak, peddle boat, & more with a friendly set of community volunteers & skilled crew of paddlers.
 Join us at Shoreline Lake in Mt. View, CA on October 13, 2018!
Participants
Our events are for those with special needs aged 4-24. Any special need is accommodated - our organizers have served those with autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, ADHD, spinal cord injuries, burns, & more. During sign up, you can let us know of any particular need we may need to address. At the end of the day - each child is awarded a medal & goodie bag!
If your child has special needs - please sign them up now - there are a limited number of spots.
Participants should plan to arrive by 9am sharp - the event will be done by approx 1pm.
Volunteers
It's not necessary to have experience volunteering or water skills to make a difference. There'll be several orientations before the event to cover safety, working with those with special needs, & more. At one point, we'll split into 3 main groups:
  • Buddies - each child is paired with one or more volunteer buddies for the duration of the event. Buddies need only a great attitude & the desire to help others. 
  • Water teams - Those with water skills may help out in a number of ways. We'll have stations for activities such as SUP, kayak, and peddle boats. There'll be one or more safety leaders for each group who'll help assess skills and assign specific roles. More skilled paddlers will paddle with the participants, others may help load / unload.
  • Support team - We'll need help with lawn games, registering participants, handing out waters, snacks, helping serve lunch, assembling goodie bags & medals for our participants, & much more. There's always something to do!
