Love paddleboarding and looking for a challenge with a difference? Join 40tude and Active360 on Saturday, 15th June 2019 for a mass paddle over a marathon distance along the River Thames on stand-up paddleboards, and help raise funds for colon cancer.
40tude is inviting participants to register now for its 26-mile endurance SUP (Stand-Up Paddleboard) charity challenge, from Walton-on-Thames to Putney.
This route of this very popular event combines tidal and non-tidal sections of the Thames – passing through three locks and under 14 bridges while taking in some of the river’s most picturesque sights – including views of Hampton Court, Syon House, Kew Gardens, Ham House and Richmond Hill.
Those who’ve paddled 40tude’s previous SUP marathons have raised a fantastic total of over £250,000 to date, and the funds raised this year will help the charity support further projects at St. Mark’s targeted at the early diagnosis and treatment of colon cancer. These include a programme to improve the screening for early-stage detection of this condition – vital because if colon cancer is discovered early, the survival rates can be excellent.
