Scott Gamble does his best for us

Scott Gamble flew the flag of the Ocean of Hope last month, when he won second place in the men's standup division of the Molokai 2 Oahu Paddle-board World Champion-ships.

"The wind, tide and swell were very good," Gamble says. "There were a lot of records broken! I beat my personal best by 30 minutes."

This is his second year to support O2H, a series of ocean races that raise money and awareness for the Sarcoma Alliance. He paddles in memory of his 22-year-old cousin, Dodge Ackerman, who had angiosarcoma and rhabdomyosarcoma. To support Gamble, check out his fundraising page.

Other athletes and volunteers assisted him and raised awareness about sarcoma. "I am lucky to have such a great cause and organization supporting me," he says.
