I am going to catch 100 waves!

 
On Saturday, September 17th I will jump in the water and take the 100 Wave Challenge. I’m going to catch 100 waves in ONE DAY to grow the Boys to Men program.

Boys to Men Mentoring is a non-profit that provides group-mentoring programs for fatherless and high-risk teenage boys at middle schools, high schools and in open community meetings. Group meetings with a community of men that volunteer their time to just to listen, and a place where the boys can interact with other boys just like themBecause of Boys to Men, these boys no longer feel alone and we are changing their lives.

73% of the boys in this program are growing up without a father. Boys who participate in the Boys to Men program show a significant increase in their self-esteem. As a result of this one factor, their grades improve, they have less discipline issues at home and school, and their dropout rates are dramatically reduced.

I am lucky enough to have a dad that was there for me everyday and coached me in baseball and soccer and tennis and continues to teach me so many of the important lessons in life.  This program mentors so many of these boys that don't have that relationship or father figure and truly helps shape their lives in so many ways.

With the money raised from the 100 Wave Challenge, Boys to Men holds 31 weekly meetings in San Diego alone -- in 20 schools with 30 in-school programs, 1 after-school program and 3 evening programs, and serve more than 600 boys. But they need to be in every middle school in the country. I want to help them get there.

Every dollar you donate helps and I appreciate you considering supporting this event and more importantly all of the boys.  Together we can get this program in every school in San Diego and you can be part of that success.

Thanks again for your consideration as I better start stretching for my 100 waves and a day I won't soon forget.

Best,

Ernie
