Garrett and Izzy Paddle for Surfer's Healing and Environmental Alliance at 13th Annual Paddleboard Race Hawaii

| posted on August 20, 2009

In late August, Garrett will be in New York for a charity weekend that benefits the 3rd Annual Surfers Environmental Alliance.

The event kicks off on the 20th with the Block Party, continues with the celebrity and action sports stars-filled White Water Evening on the 22nd in New Jersey and culminates on the 24th with a 28-mile race around beautiful Manhattans East, Hudson and Harlem rivers!

Garrett has loved this event since it began, and many of his closest friends will be participating. The weekend will benefit a charity dear to his heart, Surfers Healing, which teaches surfing to autistic children around the country. The event will also raise funds for numerous coastal awareness groups.

It feels so warm and good when giving back and sharing the sport I love and live for, Garrett said.
