Takes the 100 Wave Challenge!

 

On Sunday, October 7th, I will take the 100 Wave Challenge and catch 100 waves in ONE DAY to raise $20,000 for a remarkable organization called Boys to Men Mentoring.

Boys to Men Mentoring (BTM) is a group mentoring organization working with fatherless and disconnected teenage boys at over 39 middle and high schools across San Diego County.

In San Diego County alone, there are 49,937 boys growing up in homes without fathers, and a boy without a dad in his life is 20 times more likely to end up in prison. Fatherless children are more than twice as likely to commit suicide, and 71% of high school dropouts come from a fatherless background. BTM creates communities of mentors for boys who often have no positive male role models. Your support allows them to break the devastating cycle of fatherlessness for hundreds of teenage boys who are working to change their lives for the better.

BTM is bringing disconnected boys back into our community and encouraging them to be young men of integrity, honesty, and service.

So, what am I doing? I will be catching 100 waves in ONE DAY to raise money for BTM, which is the surfing equivalent of running a marathon!

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!

Every dollar helps, so please give what you can to help me reach my goal!

Thank you for your support!
