Paddledogs do Bass Straight

My cousin Paul (that's him in the yellow) is kayaking from Melbourne to Tasmania to raise awareness and fund the Black Dog Institute’s Bipolar Disorder research program. Bipolar Disorder affects between 3 – 5% of the global population. It creates mayhem in people’s lives regardless of age, gender or ethnicity, and is believed to be the 3rd leading cause of death among people aged 15 – 24. I cannot begin to fathom this great task and wish all of the Paddledogs safe traveling mercies and bon voyage! Feel free to make a donation here and be sure to follow up on their journey at the Paddledog's website.
