Stand up paddleboarding (SUP) has taken over our oceans and waterways as a method for convenient outdoor exercise coupled with tanning. Show off your advanced core strength and fabulous arms sculpted by balance, rowing and dozens of daily high-fives for awesomeness at the 4th Annual Adler Paddler communal paddleboard race, dubbed Paddle with Purpose. Rain or shine, the sport's best (and also just normal) participants gather to paddle around Naples Island, raising money for the John Ritter Foundation to benefit aortic dissection prevention. The short course is 2.8 miles and the ambitious long course is 5.6 miles. And the best part? There's no pre-registration and it's totally free! Donations are welcome and will be rewarded with a stylish t-shirt. Don't forget your life vest as you participate in this event benefitting a life-saving cause.
