Stand-up paddle event to raise money for Christopher's Haven - a home for kids and their families while they battle cancer

About this event

The Cape Cod Bay Challenge (CCBC) is the oldest and most recognized standup paddle (SUP) event in the Northeast. 2022 is our 15 year anniversary!

The primary goal of the CCBC is to raise funds for a truly wonderful non-profit organization, Christopher’s Haven. Located near Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Christopher’s Haven consists of nine fully furnished apartments and a community recreation area for families of children being treated for cancer in nearby Boston hospitals. www.christophershaven.org

In 2022, we will also be dedicating the event to the memory of our good friend, Tim Hanson who passed away in early December 2021. Tim was an incredible human being who was instrumental in organizing and growing the CCBC and the CCBC Ohana over the years. We miss him dearly.

Paddlers will have the following option to participate:

Virtual Paddle

  • Any time during the week of Saturday, August 6th to Saturday, August 13th, virtual paddlers will be required to navigate a 15 mile+ route (all at once) of their choice.
  • Paddlers will need to confirm that they have the experience and conditioning to complete the mileage required by the event. This is for experienced paddlers only and is not something you should attempt if you are new to the sport.
  • Virtual Paddlers will NOT be allowed to paddle alone and will be required to have a support boat if they are paddling a route that will take them further than 1/8 of a mile offshore.
  • Virtual Paddlers will submit a screenshot of their completed route and time as recorded on your time/route tracking app (such as MapMyFitness or Strava).
  • Virtual Paddlers must commit to put in the effort to raise at least $500 for Christopher's Haven. A link to set up a 2022 CCBC donation page will be provided after registration
