Stand-Up Paddle for Animals

A California man sets out to stand-up paddle around Lake Tahoe for animals.

A California man will stand-up paddle around Lake Tahoe to raise money and awareness for farm animals. John Merryfield is setting out to embark on his second fundraiser benefitting Farm Sanctuary. He plans to paddle his way around the 72-mile permitter of Lake Tahoe, a feat that he estimates will take three to four days. “It doesn't seem that strenuous nor that long when I think about the farm animals around the country for whom standing up is either torture…or a liberty not afforded to them,” Merryfield said. Last year, Merryfield raised $3,050 for Farm Sanctuary, and donations for this year’s September 10 event can be made at his website.
