THE STORY:

Why Charley & I Are Walking:


When I grew-up I lived in Toronto, Canada, miles away from the ocean and admittedly pretty ignorant to the impact I was having on it. As I got older, I began to learn more about the environment and the threats facing it. I felt compelled to be a part of the solution after watching movies like An Inconvenient Truth and Before the Flood. Then my husband and I moved to San Diego with, at the time, our five-month old daughter Charley. Suddenly, the ocean became a part of my daily life. Not only could I see the oceans beauty, I could appreciate first-hand its threats: plastic, trash and cigarette butts on the beach and in the water; beach closures due to polluted run-off after rain storms; sewage spills from Mexico; and erosion of our coasts. 


As a mother, I think about the legacy I want to leave behind for my girls. It breaks my heart to know that if present trends continue, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050. Further, 31-67% of Southern California beaches may be completely eroded by 2100 due to sea level rise. I worry about my kids, and others, getting sick from an innocent day spent surfing or swimming at the beach.  


Both as a mother and as a concerned citizen, I want to help make a difference. That's why I work for Surfrider Foundation San Diego. It's also why this Sunday December 10, my daughter Charley and I are going to participate in the Everywon 5K Run/Walk in the Gaslamp in support of Surfrider Foundation San Diego. My goal is to raise $1,500 that will directly fund Surfrider's programs and policy work that address critical issues such as plastic pollution, clean water and coastal preservation. 


I would be honored if you would support Charley and I in this initiative. Any amount is appreciated! 


Most sincerely, 



Dana Williams
