Dear All One Ocean Friends and Family,
Thank you so much for your support of All One Ocean's Run For The Beach! More on that below, as well as details on how to join us for our last Community Beach Clean Up of the season on Wednesday, October 23rd.
Our first annual Run For The Beach (RFTB) was a success by all measures and we have already started gathering some ideas for next year--picture a field day on the beach: three legged race, tug of war, volleyball, fun, fun and more fun.
We had about 60 runners and walkers, tons of free food, ice cream, a giant dolphin (see pic below), hula hoops, good waves, music, drumming, face painting, prizes and extraordinary weather as well.
Here are some highlights with pictures below:
~ the costume contest, Tashi the dog dressed as a octopus
~ the egg toss
~ the third place male runner crossing the finish line in a four foot long foam dolphin hat
~ gathering of community and families on a beautiful beach day for fun in the sun (what's better than that?)
We could not have done it without the support of our sponsors, volunteers, AOO staff and you all. We set out to move people, increase AOOâ€™s visibility, cultivate relationships, further bond people to our cause, raise money, have fun, and establish RFTB as a signature annual event. We did all that and more. We even picked up 75 pounds of trash off Ocean Beach!
