  Paddle to Cure Diabetes 1000 mile trip
  Posted by: AdventurePete on May-20-14 1:10 AM (EST)

BENEFITING: American Diabetes Association, Inc.

EVENT DATE: Jun 23, 2014


Peter Stadalsky and Nolan McClelland will canoe over 1,000 miles in 70 consecutive days to raise money to help find a cure for diabetes.

Starting in Smokey Mountain National Park, Tennessee, and ending at the Gulf of Mexico in Mobile, Alabama, Pete and Nolan will be paddling to benefit the American Diabetes Association.

No motors, no GPS, no hotels.

Just 2 best friends, 1 canoe, a tent, map and compass, and the will to face the elements for a good cause.


Pete and Nolan's fathers are both type I diabetics, and they have seen the challenges their fathers face in order to maintain life on a daily basis. Seeing the challenges of their fathers just to stay alive, Peter and Nolan have created their own challenge; to raise money for the cure.

Amongst the initial trip and charity fundraiser, My roommate and I would love to arrange other groups of paddlers to periodically meet up with us and paddle sections of our trip. Tell us what you guys think. comments, ideas, and tips are welcome! thanks!
