Lane Carlson’s 28-mile SEAPaddle

August 16, 2010, 6:27 pm

This Friday, Ford model Lane Carlson will paddle a grueling 28-mile, six-hour course along the Hudson River as part of the SEAPaddle NYC fundraising event, an alliance committed to the preservation and protection of the environmental and cultural elements that are inherent to the sport of surfing.

Featured in high-profile campaigns for Armani, Abercrombie and Fitch, UGG and Phillips Van Heusen, Lane is a dedicated philanthropist and for every mile that he paddles, he will be raising funds and awareness for Surfers Environmental Alliance and Autism Awareness. Post-paddle, Lane will be dealt in for the Texas Hold ‘Em charity Poker event to benefit Sunflower Children, established in 2004 to help disadvantaged youth around the world overcome the burden of poverty and disease so that they can focus on their education.

What Lane is doing is so inspiring! I love that he is using his platform as a Ford model to give back to the global community- it’s so important that we all do what we can for charity.
