    Jeff Guy and four friends decided it was time to stand up for the health and preservation of the Great Lakes they love. So they took to their stand-up paddleboards. 

    By being the first - ever to make the 60-mile trek across Lake Michigan, this team of paddleboarders was able to go even further by bringing awareness to all the environmental issues that plague the Great Lakes. And, to date, raise almost $8,000 to help benefit Alliance for the Great Lakes, a nonprofit that’s dedicated to cleaning up the pollution in our lakes and preserving them for future generations.
