Paddlers Wanted for VA Vigilante PaddleFit Challenge

If you’re looking for a fun and exciting way to show your support for local veterans in need, the VA Vigilante PaddleFit Challenge is for you. The event, scheduled for Saturday, May 21, 2016, in Wrightsville Beach, was founded to raise funds for homeless and disabled veterans in North Carolina. All proceeds go directly to agencies that support homeless and disabled veterans in North Carolina.

Anyone is welcome to participate in either of the two categories:

  • Recreational Race: This level is perfect for inexperienced paddlers. After a few tips from our Certified PaddleFit Instructors prior to the race, you’ll be ready to launch. The course consists of one lap around the island and from 6 to 8 fitness challenges on land, such as bear crawls, push-ups, sit-ups, and planks.
  • Advanced Race: This race is dedicated to the experienced fitness enthusiasts. The advanced race will include a series of fitness challenges including a weighted run, 2 laps paddling around the island and several fitness challenges per lap on the beach. This race will be tough, as you will be racing against extremely fit competitors. This year the Advanced race will be more challenging than ever. We are incorporating CrossFit exercises into the fitness portion of the event!

Prizes include a set of two Port City Brew Bus Tour tickets for the recreational race winner and a one-week stay at a two-bedroom condo in Costa Rica for the winner of the advanced race. To register, visit the event website and click on “Register Now.” 

The event takes its name from the nickname given to veteran and attorney David Russotto of Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban several years ago. David is an active partner in the law firm concentrating in veterans disability benefits. He and his team of experienced paralegals help disabled vets get the benefits they so richly deserve. 

So, please join all of us here at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, and help us raise money for a worthy cause: our veterans! They served for us; now it’s our turn to give back to them.

  • Thank to Mr. Spencer I was able to get my VA disability claim re-reviewed and given another chance to receive disability. By far he is one of the most professional lawyers I have ever dealt with. So Veterans if you are looking for help with your VA disability claim I would suggest that you hire Macari, Russotto, Spencer, & Balaban. Thanks again for everything.
