THE STORY:

I will be running my first marathon on July 27, 2014. I'm raising money for three charities that are close to my heart. Donations will be split three ways between: Chefs Feed Kids, Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association, and Surf for Life. 

for every $50 donated, my dad, chef/owner of Petit Robert, will send you cookies!

for every $150 donated, you will receive a Surf for Life hat

-Chefs Feed Kids http://www.chefsfeedkids.org/ My dad, Jacky Robert, founded Chefs Feed Kids to provide street children in Manila school lunches. Having a non-profit has been a lifelong dream for him and I am proud to see it in action.

-Beach Watch, The Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association http://www.farallones.org/ Since the fall of 1993 Beach Watch volunteers have conducted bi-monthly surveys of over 150 miles of coastal beaches from Point Ano Nuevo in San Mateo County north to Bodega Head in Sonoma County. Beach Watch surveyors collect baseline data of wildlife populations on Northern and Central coast beaches, documenting live and dead vertebrates found counted on surveys. They conduct oil spill sampling and tarball retrieval to assist the California Office of Spill Prevention and Response to detect and analyze the source of oil on coastal beaches. Surveyors from Beach Watch with special training have participated in multi-agency responses to oil spills in the San Francisco Bay and throughout the sanctuary. Several specimens of rare and endangered wildlife have been discovered and documented by Beach Watch volunteers, including a rare Cuvier's beaked whale, a species little known to the scientific community. The evidence gathered by Beach Watch volunteers helps the Federal government document the damage to wildlife and habitat from oil spills, determine clean up end points, identify birds and mammals at risk from oil pollution, and determine restoration projects. Data from Beach Watch has been used to secure more than $52 million in restoration funds to increase protection of natural resources and enhance lost recreational uses along the central and northern California coasts. Beach Watch data also provides information on the erosion and deposition of beaches along our coast, by photo-documenting the shoreline. This time series of beach profiles is an important part of understanding the variability of the shoreline and impacts from climate change, storms events and sea level rise.

-Surf for Life http://www.surfforlife.org/ Surf For Life is an organization that promotes community driven development in coastal areas. To date thousands of individuals have raised millions to help some of the neediest children in countries such as el salvador, nicaragua, guatemala and the phillipines. With a focus on health, clean water, food, and education surf for life is commited to help the neediest communites in the world.
