What the brand says
The Paddle For Hope is a celebration of life. Our goal is to give back some strength and confidence to women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, and give them the chance to start healing through paddleboarding.” å Karin Horen, Paddle For Hope Ambassador.
After removing from breast cancer at the age of 26, SUP fitness instructor and mother-of-three, Karin Horen made a promise to help others on the same journey, and in 2011, together with volunteers and Starboard NZ, Karin initiated the annual Starboard Paddle For Hope charity event; a fun SUP festival to raise money awareness for breast cancer rehabilitation.
In 2014 Karin had breast cancer for the second. She underwent a double mastectomy, chemo and radiotherapy, and reconstructive surgery, all while using paddle-boarding to help her recover.
Starboard will donate 50 Euros from every Paddle For Hope board sold to help people rehabilitate from the effects of cancer through the PaddleOn SUP Rehabilitation Program, facilitated by Pinc and Steel Cancer Rehabilitation Trust
The board features artwork from The Painted Warrior, by NZ artist Nikki Sorich. In the original painting she sits gracefully in a small paper boat on which is written by her child -‘love, hope, courage, faith and family”- words chosen to represent a woman’s journey with breast cancer.
