PADDLER PROFILE…Moira Horan & Bryan Gleason
This Paddler Profile is a little different – it’s ‘two for the price of one’! We need to pair Moira Horan & Bryan Gleason because their stories are linked. Bryan lured Moira to try the SEA Paddle when he worked with her ‘Jersey Girls Stay Strong Multisport Club’ swim group a few years ago as a lifeguard. There began their friendship and together they have paddled many times, volunteered, brought in additional paddlers and volunteers and supported the causes Together they push each other through the paddle course, share in the camaraderie with other paddlers and support the causes of the environment and autism in and out of the water. And they always have a smile or a good natured ribbing for each other and those around them. Their enthusiasm is infectious and something we look forward to every year. These two athletes possess strength, compassion and courage – qualities they bring to everything they do. Throughout the year, you can find these two donating their time and expertise at other events. Bryan will be working with Surfer’s Healing as one of the surf experts and Moira’s group of ‘Jersey Girls’ can be seen, well, everywhere! We are proud to call them friends and supporters!
