2014 Scunny Memorial Paddle
September 16-21, 2014 

In memory of Patrick “Scunny” McCusker 

175 miles.
6 bartenders.
1 great cause.
In honor of one great guy.

Last year, six friends decided to commemorate Patrick “Scunny” McCusker in the way they knew best – a kayak fundraiser. Over six days, the group paddled more than 175 miles from Baltimore, MD, to Ocean City, MD, using Scunny’s route from his inaugural kayak fundraiser for Believe In Tomorrow Children’s Foundation in 2006. With a great deal of blood, sweat, and tears, the six paddlers raised more than $60,000 in Scunny’s name for his favorite charity.

And this year, they’re back to do more.

The 2014 Scunny Memorial Paddle will take place September 16th – 21st, this time launching from Ocean City, MD, and ending in Baltimore, MD. The group of six is busy training in the water, mapping out the route, and generally putting the “paddle” to the metal to make this year’s voyage bigger and better.

To do so, they need your help. Join “Delaware” Dave Powell, Jason Mislan, Beth Roche, Jeff Mason, Stephen Twilley, and Joe Wandishin in making this year’s kayak trip a success. Learn more about each paddler by clicking on their photos below and making a donation in their support, and in Scunny's memory.
