The second annual Uncle Richie Paddle for M.S. (Multiple Sclerosis) will take place in the waters of Jamaica Bay on Saturday, October 2 at 9:00 a.m. It will begin at Beach 92 Street and extend to Riis Park and back. A shorter course is also available for those who want to participate. That course starts at Beach 92 Street and ends at Beach 116 Street. Last year the event was held in December and this year it is once again open to surfing paddlers and kayaks. Following the event, participants are invited to a reception at Jameson’s Pub for the paddlers and their friends at 1:00 p.m. All proceeds go to the M.S. Society.
