Little-known fact: Santa Claus is a huge fan of standup paddling. In fact, we hear that paddling on a regular basis is a fast-track to getting on his “good list.” To get in the Christmas spirit, a few festive paddlers recently embarked on Santa-themed paddle on Lake Washington. Not only fun, this fourth annual outing raised money for families dealing with cancer.
