From the hills of western Massachusetts Gillian Gibree heard the call of the ocean. Her high school accomplishments in softball and swimming led her to Cape Cod, where she began a seven-year career as a professional life guard. From there, the conversion to surfing – and eventually stand up paddle boarding – was easy.

Now, Gibree travels the globe as a professional paddle boarder and yoga instructor, motiving others in the art of movement, balance and self discovery.

Gillian has participated four times in the 36 mile Cape Cod Bay Challenge a Stand Up Paddle Board Challenge which takes place this Saturday starting in Plymouth Ma and ending in Wellfleet Ma. Over all a 12 plus hour journey across the Cape Cod Bay to raise money for Christopher's Haven a charity that provides support for both families and cancer patients at Boston’s MassGeneral Hospital for Children and the Dana-Farber/Children’s Hospital Cancer Center.
