HANNAH HILL has 25 open spots in her July 8 SUP for FISH clinic.

A Hood River teen is organizing a special water event on July 8: SUP for FISH is an event for young ladies (8-18) in the Gorge. It happens at Hood River Waterfront Park starting at 9:30 a.m. T-shirts, lunch, and hats are included.

“It is an event that will get girls to the beach and out on the water stand-up paddling. All proceeds will go straight to the Hood River FISH Food Bank,” said Hannah Hill, 16. “I’m very excited about this event. It’s going to be a lot of fun.” Hill received a grant in February from the Kids Gorge Soup event to put on SUP for FISH. Key sponsors are Naish, O’Neill, and Big Winds.

Entry fee is $15. To sign up, go to www.supforfish.WordPress.com and click the link under the “Registration” tab.

Supporters may also donate or sponsor a potential participant at the same address, or write Hill at supforfish@gmail.com.

Hill is in her fourth season racing SUP competitively, and has placed first in the overall women’s category in the first six races of the year, most recently in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
