Cape Cod Bay Challenge
The Cape Cod Bay Challenge (CCBC) is the oldest and most recognized standup paddle (SUP) event in the Northeast.
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
Based on the success of "going virtual" last year, in 2021, we plan on providing paddlers with the option of doing a virtual paddle on their own or joining us in person to paddle along the South Shore of Massachusetts in Cape Cod Bay.
Here is how it will work:
In-Person Paddle Options
There will be two options for the in-person paddle on Saturday July 31st.
Distance Paddle (approx. 16 miles)
CCBC-Lite Paddle (approx. 5-miles)
Celebration Event – July 31 @
Levitate Backyard/Rexicana Surf Cantina, Marshfield, MA
A great after paddle event has always been the hallmark of the CCBC. While we understand that not everyone participating will be able to attend the Celebration Event, we wanted to have an option for people to get together safely to celebrate Christopher's Haven, the CCBC and the accomplishments of the paddlers. The details are as follows:
- On Saturday, July 31, there will be a celebration dinner & music event from 5:30 pm-9pm for paddlers, friends & family at the Levitate Backyard/Rexicana Surf Cantina located at 1871 Ocean St, Marshfield, MA 02050. The venue will be open to the public but the CCBC will have a section designated for the event.
- Details for the Celebration Event are being finalized. All paddler registrations will include a ticket to the Celebration Event. Friends and family will need to register via Eventbrite in order to attend the Celebration Event
- The event will consist of “pay your own way" food & beverage and there will be live music
2021 is going to be a great year for the CCBC. We are extremely excited about getting our paddlers back out in the water together but we are also psyched about trying to grow the virtual paddle which will help our efforts in raising money and awareness for Christopher's Haven.
Now more than ever, children who are affected by cancer and come to Boston for treatment need Christopher’s Haven and Christopher's Haven needs our support. We hope you will participate in our event this year and look forward to hearing about your adventures on the water!
