Paddle on Purpose was formed in 2015 by professional Paddle Board Coach & Guide, Kevin Joseph. The purpose of the organization is to develop and execute one or multi-day paddle board tours and expeditions that paddlers of all kinds can be challenged and inspired by.  Paddlers collect pledges from friends, family and associates for every mile they paddle.  100% of the proceeds go to charities they choose or charities which are designated in advance.

Our Mission

Paddle On Purpose exists to raise money for worthy causes through the sport of Stand Up Paddle Boarding with challenging, inspiring, unique and scenic “Pledge Paddles”.  By helping others to experience Sport, Nature & Culture by paddle board we hope to show people that they are capable of more than they imagined.  We endeavor to bring greater awareness and value to physical fitness and adventure via paddle boarding.  We also strive to show how vital rivers, healthy lakes, functional estuaries and clean bays are integral to the health of our species and many others.  We think that adventure in these wild places serves to strengthen the connections between humans and other species.  Hopefully the result is a greater appreciation for these regions and the web of life that we depend on for the health of our food chain, our climate and our habitat.
