On this episode Mike talks with Chev Dixon, Director of the Hudson River Riders program in Yonkers, NY. The Hudson River Riders is a program that gets kids from Yonkers out paddling on the Hudson River. Chev was a kid from Jamaica living in Yonkers when he discovered the Yonkers Paddling and Rowing Club. From his first introduction to paddling and the Hudson River at 18 years old, he has become the driving force for the Hudson River Riders and a highly skilled sea kayaker. Chev is embarking on 300+ mile expedition this May in the Hudson River estuary, The Hudson Valley Challenge, in order to raise awareness of nature and adventure with underserved communities in New York.
