Over $5,000 Raised To Benefit Long Island Sound - The Fisherman

Over $5,000 Raised To Benefit Long Island Sound

Clean water supporters used a kayak, paddleboard, and canoe over the course of nine days to raise funds and awareness for environmental protection in the Long Island Sound region. The eighth annual Paddle for the Sound fundraiser was, for the fourth time, a virtual sporting event that brought together athletes, outdoor enthusiasts, and activists.

Over 300 miles were paddled and over $5,000 raised through registration fees and personal fundraising to support Save the Sound’s efforts and programs to fight climate change, save endangered lands, protect the Sound and its rivers, and work with nature to restore ecosystems. For Total Distance Paddled, Ruth Hayduk, Bronx, NY, won first place (72.57 miles), Susan Lloyd, Westport, CT, won second place (67.88 miles), and Jean Kostelich, New Rochelle, NY, won third place (52.53 miles). For Most Funds Raised, Susan Lloyd won first place ($1,500).

The event celebrates the rivers, lakes, forests, and all greenspaces that make the Long Island Sound region truly spectacular.
