Surf Your Heart Out!
I am taking the 100 Wave Challenge by attempting to catch 100 waves in ONE DAY and raise support for a remarkable organization called Boys to Men Mentoring. Last year I barely made it through with a pulled hamstring during the event but was able to grind through and finish after six hours of surfing!
I am part of an amazing team with Degree 33 Surfboards who were able to raise over $40,000 last year to allow forty boys to go through the program and have mentors for a full year in 2018. We want to do even better this year so we can really use any help you can afford. Really, no gift is too small.
Boys to Men Mentoring (BTM) is a group mentoring program working to connect hundreds of teenage boys to positive male role models they can depend on. BTM programs include weekly, in-school group mentoring, retreat weekends, beach trips, and other activities all geared to improve each boy's overall self-esteem, critical thinking skills, and self-accountability.
Growing up with some good mentors in my life, I know first hand what it means to have people in your life who can take the time to make a difference.
Please consider making a donation to my page and help me support these young men who are working to be the best they can be!
Thanks so much for your support. It means a lot to me personally and even more to the boys you will impact.
What is Boys to Men Mentoring?
More About Boys to Men
When Boys to Men Mentoring began in 1996, the devastation of fatherlessness on our community fueled their desire to support fatherless teenage boys as they transitioned into adulthood. A boy without a dad in his life is disproportionately more likely to drop out of high school, end up in prison, and commit suicide. Since then, BTM has grown to provide weekly mentorship to teenage boys from all walks of life looking for positive men empower them to be the best they can be.
Today, BTM facilitates weekly group mentoring at over 36 middle and high schools across San Diego County for over 800 teenage boys. To learn more, please visit www.boystomen.org.
