Our Story

Paddle Against Poverty started with the idea that it wouldn't be hard for a handful surfers in the Wollongong area to give up a few hours and paddle a long distance to raise money to sponsor some children through Compassion Australia. Over the ensuing 18 years, the event has grown from a small handful to over 100 paddlers! Thousands of dollars have been raised for impoverished children in countries whose waves we exploit and where the people are often overlooked. This year we're aiming for $15,000, all headed towards food, shelter and education for children who need it to survive. Join in by paddling or donating and help make a difference! The event will take place on April 7, 2018. For full information and to register, visit http://www.paddleagainstpoverty.org.au
