The TENTH Joe Way Paddle for Life gets ready for its ‘Sunset Session’ on the beach on Thursday 22nd June at Newquay Harbor.
Local boy Joe was born with a rare genetic condition and died on the 7th May 2008 aged 4. He had been labeled a miracle boy after surviving meningitis, a potentially deadly skin reaction SJS, numerous superbugs but finally died of complete organ failure after suffering from Steven Johnson Syndrome for the second time.
Since his death his parents have campaigned tirelessly to raise money for over 20 causes in his name, raising more than £139,000.
The Paddle for Life in partnership with Newquay Towan Blystra Lions Club and Surf Life Saving Cornwall raises money from the paddler's entry money, food stalls, drink sales at the rowing club and the prize draw raffle.
Matt Way, Joe’s dad, said; “We are looking forward to the live music this year as the event keeps getting bigger, we are so grateful for the business support that we have and the bands all playing for free to entertain the town”.
