The Cape Cod Bay Challenge's primary goal is to raise money for a wonderful charitable cause: Christopher’s Haven, a comfortable housing complex and supportive community for families who bring patients to Boston's Mass General Hospital for Children for brain tumors and cancer.

And the Challengers do this by bringing together a group of people who forge new friendships and deep bonds as they physically and mentally challenge themselves through stand-up paddle boarding.

With other four events during the season, organizers brought stand-up paddle boarding to the Charles River this weekend. The four mile race started at the Community Boating Center. In August, athletes will go the distance from Plymouth to Wellfleet in a 34 mile marathon that starts at sunrise.

Edging the Xtreme caught up with cancer survivor Dan Olsen, the founder of Christopher's Haven, and Mike Chase of the Cape Cod Bay Challenge to discuss the growing popularity of stand up paddle boarding (SUP) and how they are supporting a worthy cause.
