A local group is organizing a weekend full of activities for young people with special needs at a local lake, giving everyone a chance to experience the joy of time on the water.
Paddle4Good, a local non-profit group, has put together the activities set for Saturday and Sunday, September 7-8, at Shoreline Lake in north Mountain View.
According to its website, Paddle4Good has a mission to “empower, connect, and create stronger communities through safe, inclusive, adventure activities.”
As part of its PaddleTogether activities series, this weekend’s events include kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and pedal boating. The events are open to area residents with special needs between ages 4-24. Any special need or disability is accommodated and organizers can tailor most activities for the participants.
