Standup for the Cure events attract engaged participants of all ages with a common passion and purpose—to see an end to breast cancer!
Each festival-style event includes instructor-led demos and clinics, live music, happy hour, and lunch. We start things off with the world’s largest fleet of stand up paddlers—the Sea of Pink—with participants of all levels wearing their pink jerseys in honor of Komen and breast cancer survivors.
Become one of our wonderful Sponsors or join our Expo to showcase your product to standup paddlers of all levels. We are always looking for donations for our silent auctions as well! However you choose to give, we’re grateful for your support and look forward to speaking with you.
All proceeds from our events benefit the local affiliate partner of Susan G. Komen.
Each event offers many unique opportunities to align your brand with this great sport while helping save lives. Depending upon the level you chose, benefits may include:
Use of the Standup for the Cure logos
Exposure to the local breast cancer community
Website and social media exposure
Expo space on site at each event
Logo on event shirts, posters, banners and more
Email distribution to over 8,000 newsletter recipients
