Ezra King, the 4-year-old son of a Woodstock police officer, is battling a brain tumor that was diagnosed when he was 18 months old.

The Woodstock Public Safety Foundation is holding a benefit paddle boarding event to support the son of a Woodstock police officer, who is battling a brain tumor.

Paddle Boarding for Team Ezra will take place Thursday, July 29 at Murphs Surf, located at 6983 Bells Ferry Road on Lake Allatoona. Event check-in will begin at 9 a.m., with load in to the lake beginning at 9:30 a.m. Lunch will be provided by JD’s Bar-B-Que. All proceeds from the event will go directly to Team Ezra and the King family.

Registration starts at $30 for those who bring their own paddle board or kayak. Participants needing to rent a paddle board or one-person kayak can register for $40, while registration and rental of a two-person kayak is $60.

Ezra King, 4, was diagnosed with a brain tumor at 18 months old, according to the foundation. He has recently started a more aggressive treatment plan. Due to the treatments, the boy works with a therapist to strengthen his motor skills and has developed a love for paddle boarding.
