Paddle against poverty
Surfers paddle 15 kilometres, raising $16,000 to release kids from poverty
The charity event involved a 7.00am start and hours of arm-burning paddling, but event organiser Daniel Hatton said the pain was worth it to raise money for the 5 children the group supports through child sponsorship organisation Compassion Australia.
“Three hours paddling along one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world to help kids that would otherwise not be eating … it is totally worth it,” Mr Hatton says.
