Scott Gamble wins for sarcoma
Representing the Ocean of Hope, Scott Gamble of Honolulu won third place in his division in the prestigious Molokai to Oahu Paddleboard World Championship this week. Hawaii News Now has interviews with paddlers; Scott's interview starts at 1:49 minutes.
"He did great! The race was windy and a bit rough, but the paddlers had the wind and current going with them, which helped," team captain Aimee Spector said. "The Ocean of Hope tent raised a lot of awareness that day! We sold T-shirts and bracelets and gave away stickers. We are definitely looking forward to next year."
Before the race, Molokai2Oahu.com, Wet Feet Hawaii and Hawaii News Now reported on Scott. Afterward, the fourth-place winner mentioned Scott in this account. The Sarcoma Alliance is grateful for the money O2H raises, but the awareness is invaluable.
