Hi Friends, as you know, I've spent my career (so far, at 53 I think I'm just getting started) working with and for children. While I continue volunteering with Mini Mermaids and am Executive Director at Jacob's Heart Children's Cancer Support Services I am stoked to be able to use my love of doing weirdly hard things and supporting the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Cruz County. Lis Dubois a long-time friend and now Executive Director of Boys & Girls Club is bringing her heart, mind, and talent to make the organization even stronger for years to come and I'm thrilled to be fundraising to support the organization!
In September, I'm riding 200 miles with Sunrise Rotary of Santa Cruz and have committed to raising $1000 for the Boys and Girls Club. All $1000 will go to Boys and Girls Club (I paid for the ride) and I hope you'll help me raise funds for this amazing organization.
Since 1969, the Boys & Girls Club has offered a safe place for kids in our community to receive the mentorship they need to learn, grow and thrive. The Club offers core afterschool and summer programs, in addition, to swim lessons, art, music, a basketball league, a surf club, and more to kids in our community. Most importantly, the Club provides a place for kids to belong, with trusted and caring mentors who offer daily homework help and healthy meals. When kids have the Club, and the Club has supporters like us, there is nothing this next generation can’t do!
Please read more about our beneficiary organizations and how through our partnership we will support our young community members.
As usual, I still like to do crazy hard things outside with friends and this time is no different, please consider helping me reach my goal of $1000 with an all-volunteer crew 100% of the proceeds go to support our community and it’s all tax deductible as the Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit.
