The Cape Cod Bay Challenge (CCBC) is a recognized 501c3 non-profit organization (EIN # 45-1265096) that hosts a series of annual stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) events.
The CCBC's primary goal is to raise money for a truly wonderful charitable cause: Christopher’s Haven. We do this by bringing together a group of people who forge new friendships and deep bonds as they physically and mentally challenge themselves through the sport of stand-up paddleboarding.

The CCBC is the oldest and most recognizable series of SUP events in the Northeast. The primary event, the crossing of Cape Cod Bay in August, is the longest SUP event on the East Coast. What makes the crossing of the Bay even more unique is that it is not a race. Paddlers cross together, supporting each other along the way. Irreplaceable bonds are formed between paddlers during the 10-12 hour, grueling 34 miles across the Bay and the sense of family and community that is felt at the finish line and the after party is unbelievable. The CCBC is unlike any other event.
