An extreme event for a good cause

Jerry’s Baddle, a bike/kayak duathlon taking place at the Green River Narrows near Saluda, happens this Saturday, April 19.

The event serves as a fundraiser primarily for research towards a cure for ALS, the neurodegenerative disease that claimed well-loved paddler Jerry Beckwith‘s life in 2006. The Green River Access fund also benefits.
