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 funds in Scunny’s name for his favorite charity.

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

The 2014 Scunny Memorial Paddle takes place September 16th – 21st, this time launching from Ocean City, MD, and ending in Baltimore, MD. The eight-man crew is busy training in the water, mapping out the route, and putting the “paddle” to the metal to make this year's voyage bigger and better.

Check out media coverage of this year's Paddle.

To do so, they need your help. Join “Delaware” Dave Powell, Jason Mislan, Beth Roche, Jeff Mason, Stephen Twilley, Joe Wandishin, Shawn Paradise, and Chris Furst - along with Captain Tyler Cole - 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.
