It is a well-known fact that boys need male role models. Unfortunately, many teenage boys have no one to guide them on the path to becoming men.
Boys to Men is a group mentoring program working with at-risk boys in middle schools, high schools and foster care facilities. 75% of the boys in this program don’t have a father in their home and 68% are from low-income, single-mother households.
These boys are struggling and I’m going to do my best to help them.
It is an honor for me to use my surfing abilities to raise money for Boys to Men. One week from this Saturday, on September 20th, I will be joining hundreds of other surfers down in Mission Beach in San Diego, spreading the stoke of surfing and trying to catch as many waves as possible — hopefully 100 waves in 12 hours.
The 100 Wave Challenge funds the majority of the program’s expenses for the coming year. This fundraiser is like a walk-a-thon, but way more fun, because it involves surfing. This is where you and I come in to the Boys to Men picture.
Please consider donating to this incredible non-profit organization, and if you can come down to the beach and surf with us or cheer us on, we would love to have your support!
Thank you so much,
