Aaron Gonzalez is getting ready to stand up paddle board from Port Isabel to Port Arthur.
Why? well the Austin man is raising money for Patriot PAWS, a non-profit which gives service dogs to veterans. He is hoping to raise $15,000.
"The plan is travel about 30 miles a day," He's hoping along the way he'll meet people who want to contribute to his cause, saying he wants to give those who served our country what he has, an unbreakable bond between a dog and their owner.
His love for dogs and appreciation for our veterans is powerful and was instrumental in the formulation of his dream, "Paddle For Paws".
If you'd like to donate to this cause, you can visit Gonzalez's GoFundMe page.
