Just Keep Livin' Beach Party
We are excited to share an update with you from one of our beneficiaries located in Los Angeles, Just Keep Livin. They had an end of the year celebration with the kids they serve on the beach. Below is a recap from their fun day!
"For our JKL Los Angeles End of the Year Celebration, we were thrilled to team up with our friends at the Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation again this year. This organization is doing remarkable work through providing free ocean therapy classes and surf lessons to veterans, foster children and inner city youth. On Saturday, June 2nd, we brought over 90 JKL students to El Porto Beach in the South Bay for a day filled with sunshine, laughter, physical challenges, and a fun filled day for all! For many of our students, it was their first time getting on a surfboard and for some, it was even their first time in the ocean! The event itself helped bring to life the four major components of the JKL program by featuring Surfing & Body Surfing Stations (Fitness), a Yoga Station (Gratitude/Reflection), Beach Clean-Up Station (Community Service), a sand castle building station, and a healthy lunch and snacks for all attendees. (Nutrition). We are so grateful to the JMMF for all of their help executing this event and securing so many wonderful volunteers who donated their time to help make the day one our students will never forget."
