To make a general
The Block Challenge brings together a community of women, men, and students to achieve a goal beyond themselves - undertaking the physical and mental challenge of an open ocean paddle from Montauk to Block Island, with the purpose of bettering the lives of children.
Adventure, challenge, beneficence, and heart are the keystones of the organization.
Block Challenge paddlers agree to raise or donate a minimum of $1500 to participate. In the spirit of the event and to have the greatest impact for the nonprofit organizations receiving the funds, most paddlers raise even more.
The 2018 paddlers who made the crossing and raised almost $160,000.
To date, Paddlers for Humanity has given away 1.76 Million dollars.
