Paddle for the Sound Fundraiser

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Save the Sound presents the seventh annual Paddle for the Sound event from August 12 – August 14. For the third year, it will be a virtual event that participants can join from anywhere.

For three days, the seventh Annual Paddle for the Sound fundraiser for Save the Sound will virtually bring together athletes, outdoor enthusiasts, and activists for either a leisure paddle or kayak or a competition for those who want to challenge themselves. Participants will raise awareness and funds to fight climate change, save endangered lands, protect the Sound and its rivers, and restore local ecosystems.

Prizes will be awarded to the first, second, and third place finishers based on total distance paddled with a kayak or paddleboard over the duration of the event.

Participants will start their virtual races from self-selected launch points, tracking their miles with each excursion. Those interested in following along are encouraged to check out the hashtags #Paddle2022 and #PaddleLIS on Instagram for live updates from the paddlers themselves.

Participants can register up until Friday, August 12 at
