One step individually and as a community, to make a world of change.
We created Beach Beast for many reasons. Of course we wanted to create an awesome and rough race to challenge us. But we also created Beach Beast to create opportunities in our communities. One way to change our world will be through contributing to Volunteers of America. A portion of all race proceeds will be used to help Volunteers of America continue to provide the important services that they run for our communities.
