Friends Mike Simpson and Will Rich arrived Wednesday on Hilton Head Island. The two are attempting to paddleboard from Key West, Fla., to Portland, Maine, to raise awareness and money for the Wounded Warrior Project, a national nonprofit organization that aids injured military personnel, and Stand Up for a Clean Ocean, an organization based in North Carolina dedicated to removing trash and debris from beaches. For a video of the paddlers, go to photographer Sarah Welliver's blog.
