Our Sponsors and Donors

Paddling for Pennies is dedicated to supporting our FIRST RESPONDERS, ACTIVE MILITARY and VETERANS

Our mission is to provide EMOTIONAL, PHYSICAL, and FINANCIAL support, as well as bring AWARENESS to the issues affecting these heros in their occupations.

This grass roots movement began with a simple idea: To give back and support those who have given whatever it took. In 2013, a group of local firefighters engaged in a grueling kayaking trip, paddling the Neuse River, starting in North Raleigh at Falls Lake, to New Bern, a total of 193 miles. They asked for a minimum sponsorship of just a penny a mile, totaling $1.93.
