Charleston Paddle Club
The Charleston Paddle Club is a local non-profit group that is passionate about paddle sports, physical fitness, and fellowship. Our regular events include weekly dragon boat instruction and team practices, outrigger canoeing, stand up paddle boarding and various social events throughout the year. Members of our amateur sports team, the Charleston Firebreathers, compete nationally in dragon boating events and internationally by representing Team USA. Through these sports, our members develop a greater respect and love for Charleston’s beaches and waterways, get in great shape, and make new friends. We welcome members of all ages and skill levels, and we especially love introducing these rapidly growing sports to the people of the Lowcountry. We have a goal to grow our organization by adding programs that engage a wider part of our community, facilitate additional “Give Back” opportunities, and support our athletes in attending races. We appreciate your support and partnership in this event.
In the partner agreement below are are our partnership levels and benefits but we will also be happy to work with you to tailor a package that fits your budget as well as meets your company’s marketing goals and objectives. Item donations are welcome as well for the fundraising raffle and for the participant bags (required quantity = 200). Item donation values will be determined on a case by case basis and a corresponding level of recognition to be set by the community relations team.
