Courtney Conlogue Paddled 32 miles for Charity

Professional surfer Courtney Conlogue is used to spending copious amounts of time in the ocean, but last Saturday was something entirely different for her. Starting from the Catalina Channel, Conlogue got in the water and began paddling until she hit the sand of Huntington beach seven hours and 45 minutes later.

Conlogue originally came up with the idea for the 32-mile challenge during her recovery from a brain injury. She hoped that the grueling paddle would not only push her limits but also inspire others who might be struggling mentally during the Coronavirus pandemic. On top of that, she also made the paddle a fundraiser, so she could raise money for the non-profits Feeding America and A Better Chance. She hasn’t announced the final amount but has hinted that the total so far is in the thousands.

Thankfully for Conlogue, the water was glassy for the adventure. At times the surfer found herself exhausted, but she was determined to not give up. She was joined by her brother Ryan and good friend Landon Holman, who helped keep spirits high as they moved through the water. On the final stretch of the paddle, the trio was greeted by a rescue boat and the Huntington Beach community, which helped their team push through the last section. Seeing her local community’s support had Conlogue completely emotional by the time she reached the sand.

Her goal was to inspire others, and it’s safe to say she did just that and more. 

Great job Courtney! Charity events like these are what separates a great sports personality from a good one. Thank you for taking the time to raise awareness for people with mental disabilities and problems. Kudos! Thanks for sharing this news! Septic Repairs

This is what sports events should be. Not showing off, nor showcasing skills, but rather doing both and then helping other people at the same time. Great news, Mor athletes should follow in your footsteps, Courtney! Residential Roofing

The North Face Unveils ‘PERSPECTIVES’, A Film Series Exploring Change

Change is a constant of life. We can’t control change, but we have autonomy over how we react to it. For folks who thrive in the outdoors, this rings especially true. We’re constantly at the mercy of Mother Nature, coping with changing elements, seasons, conditions, or goals. For someone like filmmaker Renan Ozturk, his life was always dictated by climbing. It was his compass, guiding him from one grand adventure to the next. But Ozturk wouldn’t be the filmmaker he is today had he never

Viridiana Álvarez Is Breaking Barriers in the Mountaineering World

Simply summiting Everest, K2, or Kangchenjunga is a remarkable accomplishment in its own right.

And while the world record is a nice reward, the mountaineer from Mexico simply hopes that her adventures will inspire other Latinx women to dream big and carve their path in the outdoors. Her next big goal is to climb the 14 biggest mountains globally, and she’s already crossed five off
