Marina Spotlight: Paddle for Breast Cancer this Sunday at Mother’s Beach


The great part about life in Marina del Rey is that there are always cool things going on. Concerts in the park, Champagne brunches, and amazing events that radiate a brand of charm that’s just pure Marina magic. One of the most powerful events happening down at Mother’s Beach every month is the TBG Champion Paddle, a 90-minute SUP paddle event for breast cancer awareness & support. It happens one Sunday each month from 9 am to 10:30 am, and it’s an extraordinary way to spend a weekend morning.

The TBG Champion Paddle itself is a joint effort between the ProSUP Shop and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Tiffany B. Grunwald, to raise awareness for breast cancer, celebrate healthy bodies, and honor all of the incredible breast cancer warriors who have fought the disease. It’s a pretty nifty gathering where you can get out on the water, support friends & family and be a part of something kind of special for 90 minutes.

If you’re interested, here are the details.

Cost: $35 (slightly reduced rental rate) for SUP board rental

Suggestions: Bring a small gift for those currently fighting breast cancer, like a $10 gift card for LA bite food delivery service or an item that may come in handy for someone undergoing treatment.

Next Paddle: Sunday, January 22nd at 9 am — meet up at the ProSUP shop in the Jamaica Bay Inn at 4175 Admiralty Way.

Reservations: Visit ProSUP shop to book your spot.
