Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort is pleased to welcome back the 8th Annual Standup for the Cure fundraiser on Saturday, May 4, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Join more than 1,000 breast cancer awareness advocates, survivors and paddling enthusiasts in one of the world’s largest fleets of Standup Paddlers, wearing pink to support the Orange County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen, the world’s largest breast cancer organization.
The family friendly morning of activities begins with a free standup paddleboard clinic and standup yoga clinic for all skill levels as well “dry foot” activities on land including yoga classes, free breast and skin cancer screenings provided by Kaiser Permanente and the opportunity to win great prizes through the raffle and silent auction. The Hawaiian blessing of survivors and white dove release will kick off the Sea of Pink, a ceremonial parade for all paddlers in attendance. Following the parade are optional races for kids and adults and Happy Hour on the beach accompanied by live music. Lunch will be served by Newport Dunes’ waterfront restaurant, Back Bay Bistro.
Having raised more than $1.2 million for the Susan G. Komen organization across the United States, Standup for the Cure donates 75% of the net proceeds to local life-saving education, screenings, diagnostics, treatment, and survivorship programs. The remaining proceeds are invested in world-wide breast cancer research.
