Donations for the 26.5-mile paddle race benefit the Surfers Environmental Alliance and seven autism charities
Adam Glasgow of Advanced H2O Solutions of Toms River, N.J., and Frank DeSilva of ResinTech Inc. in West Berlin, N.J., were part of a team that competed in the sixth annual Surfers’ Environmental Alliance (SEA) SEAPaddle NYC on Aug. 17, 2012. The race was a 26.5-mile paddle around the island of Manhattan. The Advanced H2O Team was the top fundraising team at the event. All donations go to the event’s charitable organization beneficiaries, Surfers Environmental Alliance, and seven autism charities: Best Day Foundation, Autism Family Service of NJ, Autism of NJ, Hawaiian Autism Foundation, Parents of Autistic Children, Surfer’s Healing and Virginia Autism Project.
“SEAPaddle NYC raised over $325,000 this year for these organizations,” DeSilva said. “Adam and I were honored to represent the water treatment community in the fundraising efforts for 2012.”
SEA is committed to the preservation and protection of the environmental and cultural elements that are inherent to the sport of surfing.
