I’m doing it again!

On Saturday, September 17th I will jump in the water for the 3rd time and take the 100 Wave Challenge. I’m going to catch 100 waves in ONE DAY, because I am dedicated to helping 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.

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.

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.

Over 2 years I have raised $3969 for this remarkable organization, and this year my goal is to raise another $3000. So many of you have helped me before and I am here asking you to help me again this year. Every dollar you donate helps.

Thank you from me, and from all of the boys,    

Layne
