Our Club has grown dramatically since its inception and has enjoyed many successes of both competition and fellowship. In the Spirit of Aloha, we felt that it was time to start giving back to the San Diego community. To this end, we seek local charities with shared interests and values, and introduce them to the fun of our paddling activities, as well as sharing in the benefits of our fundraising.
One of our charities is the Ocean Discovery Institute, a local non-profit organization that uses exploration of the oceans to engage and inspire young people toward college and a career in science. By preparing them to be scientific and environmental leaders, ODI empowers those young people to protect our oceans and natural environment. Another focus of our community work is the Balboa Warrior Athlete Program at Balboa Naval Hospital. The Club offers regular paddling days for them as a physically therapeutic component to their rehabilitation.
