Paddle Paradise Clean Up with Omar

Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico.

We all saw the destruction on the news, but most of us feel paralyzed and not able to help. I feel like this as well and have a wonderful friend named Omar Ramos who’s a Puerto Rican native and owns a company called Paddle Paradise. Omar is an incredible person who works hard for his family, his business in Puerto Rican adventure tourism and donates his time to the American Canoe Association as Puerto Rico’s State Director. It’s my goal to ask fellow paddlers for donations to rebuild Paddle Paradise. Let’s give our assistance to Omar Ramos with his clean up efforts and get Paddle Paradise up and running so cultural exchange will continue.

Please help with your donations.
