BENEFITING: Surfrider Foundation
EVENT DATE: Aug 31, 2013
On August 31st, I plan to swim across the Catalina Channel as part of a personal challenge. While preparing I became very aware of the environmental issues that face our oceans. Those oceans have given me such amazing experiences over the last 4 years that I have been open water swimming, and I would like to give something back. So, I am starting a fundraiser for the Surfrider Foundation, who has done a lot to clean up beaches, preserve public access to those beaches, and promote environmental causes, not only in California but across the United States. My hope is that through the help of my charitable friends, we can continue to help bring the oceans to a cleaner state.
