Last year, I completed the running leg of the “Team Burgess” relay team that helped raised $800 for Oceana. This year, I may not be challenging for the winner’s podium at the Nautica South Beach Triathlon, but I am challenging myself to complete the entire race solo and raise $3,000 for Oceana! As you know, I am passionate about protecting and repairing our most precious commodity – Mother Ocean. My favorite moments are spent watching the sunrise over the ocean to welcome a new day, scuba diving among breath-taking sea life, paddleboarding with my pug and sailing on the bay by my home in Miami, or simply closing my eyes to smell the sea and feel the ocean breeze on my face. So, I am very proud of the work I do both personally and on behalf of Burgess to raise awareness and enable contributions that help make a difference in Oceana’s campaigns (like permanently ending destructive trawling in the Belize Barrier Reef- where this photo was taken!). Let’s help Oceana’s tremendous efforts to give our children the healthiest Ocean possible, along with the education on how to maintain and improve upon this for future generations!
