Panda Paddle is the first paddling event for a more balanced world. We're paddling in nature, for nature.
From August 21-23, we will join with nature & animal lovers from across the country as we all paddle on our favorite body of water in support of the World Wildlife Fund and in memory of Ramon Alvarado. Ramon had been battling leukemia, with the support of his amazing wife, his sister’s bone marrow, his three beagles, friends & family, and a whole army of twitter anipals. He recently left us, but he left this earth cancer-free. Ramon’s stamina in his fight was inspiring. We’re going honor Ramón’s memory by completing a 5K paddle on our favorite body of water with our favorite water craft (stand-up paddle board, canoe, kayak). Each paddler on our team will carry a stuffed animal on board, to remind us of Ramón and his love of animals. Support us by donating to our Panda Paddle page today! All donations will be mad in Ramón’s memory. Conservation is the most important part of this race, and every dollar you provide helps WWF address our planet’s interconnected challenges.
Thank you for helping us protect the world’s animals, and remember Ramón at the same time.
