The crazy support for the 2nd Annual My Aloha Cup confirmed that the people of Charlotte, NC are falling in love with Stand Up Paddleboarding.  On May 5th My Aloha Paddle Sports & Fitness hosted the race which raised more than $2,000 for Habitat for Humanity.  It was extremely exciting to see the spectators so psyched about the race and the sport. They cheered on the fifty paddlers who participated while enjoying a gorgeous day on Lake Norman at Vinny’s Grill & Raw Bar. Race day photos on www.whatsupwithdana.com.

 

Besides the live music by The Tsunami Wave Riders there was plenty of entertainment including free board demos and Paddle Fusion Fitness Class demonstration.  More than $2,000 in raffle prizes were donated by local Lake Norman companies and one very excited spectator went home with a brand new 12'6" Race Board donated by NSP!!

 

We have to give a special shout out to the winners…congratulations to:

 

Elite 4 mile            Men’s : Kevin Vangritis  Cary, NC  Women’s : Dawn Jeffers   -  Davidson, NC 
Recreational 2 Mile:  Men’s: Andrew Cesmat –Denver, NC  Women’s: Jennifer Cesmat – Denver, NC

 

My Aloha Paddle Sports and Fitness has invested a tremendous amount of time and money to promote Stand UP Paddleboarding in the Charlotte area.  Owner Rob Bennett says the focus is on supporting the community and on the preservation of local waterways through sports that do not leave a carbon footprint.
