CARLSBAD, California – Boardworks, a leader in the surf and standup paddle industries offering innovative and award-winning products, is proud to partner with Standup for the Cure, a charity paddling event that raises money for early breast cancer detection, treatment, and education. To date, Standup for the Cure has screened over 1400 individuals for breast cancer and melanoma and raised over $1.1 million. As the 2018 National Presenting Sponsor of Stand Up for the Cure, Boardworks will be donating standup paddle boards to the organization’s series of four events across the country.
Going beyond their event sponsorship, Boardworks has also pledged to donate significant proceeds from all sales of the limited edition Boardworks inflatable ShubuStandup for the Cure model. The limited-edition inflatable board is ideal for all conditions, abilities and ages and is fully equipped with three-piece adjustable paddle, pump, carry bag, ultra-comfortable Honey Fomb® embossed deck-pad, easy to reach cargo bungee, and neoprene carrying handles.
“Boardworks is honored to partner with Standup for the Cure,” said Andrew Mencinsky, Brand Manager at Boardworks. “Having attended the organization’s events for the past three years, it was a natural alignment for Boardworks to step up to Presenting Sponsor. Our team greatly admires the work that Standup for the Cure has done and its ties to the paddling community, and we look forward to elevating the importance and awareness of breast cancer through our sponsorship and limited-edition Standup for the Cure model board sales.”
