Hello fellow Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes fans,
My name is Alicia and I work in the marketing department, I wanted to take a minute to write about an awesome event that is taking place in San Diego this weekend at Mission Beach. It is called the 100 Wave Challenge and it is benefitting a great organization called Boys to Men. Did you know that 33% of boys are now growing up without a father? 12,000,000 boys in the U.S. alone. This is a sad, but mind-numbing statistic. Boys to Men is a mentoring program that takes this problem personally. They know how to help these boys and have witnessed thousands of their stories change from despair to hope. By giving adolescent boys a group of good mentors and role models who praise them for their unique gifts and support them when they need help, these boys have a better chance of growing up to be who they would like to be.
Participants of the 100 Wave Challenge have been fundraising for months and on Saturday Sept. 24th they will be hitting the water to try to catch 100 waves in support of this cause. Not only am I lucky enough to be a participant in this event, but my company, Souplantation, is a sponsor. This event is going to be so much fun, and it is open to anyone and everyone who wants to come watch!!
