On Saturday, September 23rd I will take the 100 Wave Challenge and do my best to catch 100 waves in ONE DAY to raise $1,000 for a remarkable organization called Boys to Men Mentoring.
Boys to Men is a group mentoring program working with fatherless and high-risk teenage boys in 33 middle schools and high schools across San Diego county.
BTM provides mentors to the boys in the program who often have no positive male role models – the men in their lives are in gangs, prison or have abandoned them in most cases. The money raised in this single event allows Boys to Men to provide trained mentors throughout the year and help make a difference in the lives of those who need them most. Sadly, nearly 80% of the boys in this program don’t have a father in their home.
So, what am I doing? I will be catching 100 waves in ONE DAY, which is the surfing equivalent of running a marathon!
This will be a big challenge for me – 100 waves in one day is crazy! Of course, it will be worth all my efforts to help support these boys. This is a personal challenge for me and I am training for the big event. These boys are struggling and I’m going to do my best to help them.
What can you do to support me and the boys who need Boys to Men Mentoring in their lives? You can make a donation to my page and help me get the word out about this event and the good we are doing!
Every dollar helps, so please give what you can to help me reach my goal!
