The 13th Annual 100 Wave Challenge for Boys to Men Mentoring is in full swing.  If you aren't aware, numerous Rotarians and Rotaractors from D5340 are involved to support these efforts and there is still time to do your part. Boys to Men Mentoring Foundation based in San Diego is hoping to expand their in-school programs from 33 local Middle and High Schools to 40 by next Fall.  Consider partnering your club with them to reach this goal. 
On Saturday Oct. 8 Derren Lechuga (San Diego Coastal), Lifetime member Ken Barrett (Past President, RC of Del Mar Solana Beach) and Brett Morey (Founder of Surfers Unite Rotarian Fellowship and Past President RC of La Jolla Golden Triangle) took to the water with the Degree 33 Surfboard team to catch 100 waves in a single day.  Ranjan Lahiri of the Golden Triangle Rotary Club took photos of the event, and the guys finished a little more than six hours later. The team has raised over $45k towards a $50k goal.
You can support at-risk teens in a number of ways:
  1. Be a food runner picking up Pannikin coffee and danish or pick up Board & Brew.  They will have team paddling out most weekend through end of November.
  2. Become a mentor to help teenage boys growing up without a positive male role model
  3. Start a team at and get your surfing friends and family members involved.
  4. Donate to the cause online --Just text "100Wave" to 858-602-2532 or reach out to Brett Morey at for more info.  Don't miss other fun upcoming events including the November 5th BeachClean Up and the December 3rd Ugly Christmas Sweater Paddle Out in Del Mar.  Sign up at and use these opportunities to invite non-Rotary friends to recruit them into your club.
