The Ocean of Hope began at the Catalina Classic, with one paddler racing in honor of Sarcoma Alliance founder Suzanne Leider. Since 1999, scores of athletes have paddled the grueling 32 miles from Catalina Island to Manhattan Beach. People who raise $3,000 for the Alliance can have their names, or the name of a loved one, on a paddleboard. Go to Active.com to donate. Get inspired by this gorgeous video of the Classic by Chris Aguilar of Soul Surf Media.
O2H will have tents with food, drink, merchandise and raffle tickets for sale on Manhattan Beach. Come out and support our team!
