KOMMONA PADDLE RACE RESULTS ARE IN!
YOU KEEP PADDLIN' AND RACE PARTICIPANTS
First and foremost, Keep Paddlin’ and Care
Resource wish to thank everyone who came out for 4th Annual Kommona Paddle Race
and every one of you truly represented what paddling is all about.
This year mother nature gave participants of the race very challenging
weather conditions with SSE 10-15mph winds, with even greater gusts and
thunderstorms to round out the morning.
Despite all the weather obstacles that came their way and of the 76
registered participants, 58 paddlers hit the water with smiles on
Saturday morning at 9am. Keep Paddlin and Care Resource want to commend
those who came out and braved it all.
Kommona Paddle is about sportsmanship,
inspiration, hope, unity and always believing that anything is
possible, especially when we meet obstacles head on - one stroke at a
time. This year's 4th Annual Kommona Paddle race truly demonstrated
each of these aspects as it brought together elite competitors and
first time paddlers alike. Stand-Up and Prone Paddlers, Kayaks and Surf
skis all paddled side by side, working hard in the waves and cross chop.
Thank you for bringing all your spirit and heart, making this event
ever stronger each year! With each race, we gain more knowledge,
learning and moving toward the best event possible with every paddler
who joins our soulful community of water-men and water-women. Keep
spreading the good word and keep doing small things with great love!

AT THE MIAMI BEACH CONVENTION CENTER
Join Care Resource as we present "Elliot Loves"
tonight at the Miami Beach Convention Center at 8:30pm as part of the
Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival program.
Elliot Loves is
a story of Dominican-American Elliot Ayende at two stages of his life:
as a 9-year-old who is side-kick and confidant to his
barely-keeping-it-together single mom; and as a 21-year-old looking for
love in New York City. A comedy-drama that shows you can survive
anything life throws at you - just "keep it cute, papi."
Director Terracino will be in attendance as will actors Monte Bezell,
Israel Gutierrez, Quentin Davis Araujo, Elena Goode and Erin Fogel.
Filmmaker and actors will hold an Q&A session immediatley after the
film and will also attend Friday Spotlight party at Queen. Click here to purchase
tickets, view the film trailer and for more information.
