“Stand Up For Great Lakes” Begins Paddleboard Trip Across Lake Huron
A group of paddleboarders are hitting the water for a monumental adventure: paddling all the way across Lake Huron to Canada.
The Stand Up For Great Lakes group took off from Alpena around 8 Monday morning and brought us along for the ride.
They will paddle 90 miles to Tobermory, Canada.
The purpose of the paddleboard trip is to raise money for the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
Their goal is to help keep our Great Lakes beautiful.
The group has about 60 miles to go until they reach Tobermory.
They are expected to pull in Tuesday morning.
“It’s so awesome to be able to find a passion and be able to do something about it in a big way. The following and the people that are supporting, sending us messages that makes us feel great, but then just being able to do something that we love so much is pretty spectacular,” says Kwin Morris, Stand Up For Great Lakes.
We have a camera on the safety boat documenting this monumental trip the entire way.
We’ll have more as they make their way across the lake, both on air and online.
