Atlantic SUPer Girls
PADDLERS: Julieta "Jules" Gismondi and LouAnne Harris
On October 12, two girls set off from the shores of New York City with their sites set on the southernmost state of the American east coast, some 1,500 miles away. Throughout the next four months, their epic paddling adventure carried them through irreplaceable experiences, wrought with unforeseen challenges, unprecedented triumphs and generosity from countless supporters along the way. 125 days after leaving NYC, Julieta "Jules" Gismondi and LouAnne Harris—the female paddling duo now famously dubbed the Atlantic SUPergirls—stroked into Miami's Biscayne Bay and successfully completed their mission. Their journey not only inspired thousands of people, but also raised more than $16,000 for charity.
