2nd Annual Adler Paddler This Saturday March 17th

We are proud to announce that the 2nd annual ADLER PADDLER will be back for 2012!

WHEN: MARCH 17th St. Patty’s Day 9am

WHERE: Belmont Shores, Long Beach Ca. (same spot as last year)

WHAT: A FREE 2.8 mile SUP & Prone Paddle Race/ Fun Paddle around Naples Island

WHY: To Remember our good friend Steve Adler and raise funds and awareness for the John Ritter Foundation and the Thoracic Aortic Disease Coalition

The second annual Adler Paddler is Saturday, March 17 – on St. Paddy’s Day - so mark your calendars and come out to support.

Steve Adler passed away at 40 from an undiagnosed thoracic aortic dissection two years ago. The well-known glasser who grew up in the Long Beach area was making strides in the Stand Up Paddle community when he unexpectedly collapsed while working.

Adler has a teenage son, Clark, and Steve’s mom will have a table with baked goods to raise money for his college fund. Proceeds from the paddle and raffle will go to the John Ritter Foundation. Ritter also passed away from a similar condition.

Amy Yasbeck will be at the event and will be signing copies of “WITH LOVE AND LAUGHTER,” about life with her late husband.
All books, raffles, and T-shirt sales proceed are all going directly to the John Ritter Foundation for Aortic health.

The event is a free, 2.8-mile SUP and Prone Paddle Race and fun paddle around Naples Island in Long Beach. It kicks off at 9 a.m.

Last year, nearly 90 dedicated paddlers showed up in strong winds, choppy waters and pouring rain to show support and do the paddle. Nearly $8,000 was raised.
