This nationwide, one month long, online tournament will be fun and for a good cause!
The Florida Bass Paddlers are proud to announce the FBP “Reds, White, and Blue” fundraiser. This kayak fishing tournament is meant to raise money for Honoring the Brave and Team River Runners. Each month, St. Augustine Paddle Sports, in conjunction with Team River Runners, host a day on the water for veterans to come out and enjoy kayaking as well as stand up paddle boarding. This special day is for our veterans to get out on the water with their families and have a good time. While there are many volunteers who help with bringing gear for our veterans to use, there is simply not enough. The money raised through this fundraiser will help buy gear to be used each month, so regardless of how many veterans come out, there will be enough gear for everyone.
