This year, Paddlers for Humanity’s Block Island Challenge, an 18-mile, open-ocean paddle from Montauk Point to Block Island, will be held Saturday, August 19th. The event, which works to raise funds for P4H’s goal of improving the mental health and resiliency of local youth, is an in-house favorite in the world of rewarding East End initiatives and almost always brings with it great weather + memorable times for the weekend. Folks looking to go the distance this year can paddle themselves, or string together a badass relay team of their choosing. In addition, this year’s paddle will be filmed as part of a full-length documentary on the event, to be entered into Hampton’s International Film Festival 2018.

Registration is now open to the public, and interested participants, professional relay squads and physically fit actors looking be part of a great cause and add to their IMBD credits can check out more info + sign up for this year’s challenge over at www.p4h.org.
