Everyone knows that sharing = caring, but certain types of sharing are more meaningful and impactful than others. Sharing food is great, people sharing their wealth is also important, though oftentimes it’s nice when people don’t share their (unfounded) opinions. Sharing your time and knowledge, however, is probably the best and selfless kind of giving back. So if that’s something you have interest in – in addition to some paddleboarding skills as well as a spare one – come out this weekend and help StokeShare connect inner city kids with the outdoors by giving them the gear and guidance they need to go paddle boarding for the first time.
StokeShare’s mission is to connect children with the outdoors by giving them access to all the adventure equipment needed to get out there. They’re partnering with Real Options for City Kids (R.O.C.K.) to bring a group paddleboarding in San Rafael this Halloween and your assistance would be invaluable. So please list your paddleboards and kayaks on stokeshare.com and volunteer!
