David Martin, a 9th grade student at Flour Bluff High School, rode his unicycle last year as a benefit event for Mission 911. He rode a total of 15 miles up and down Ocean Dr. and for every mile, donations were pledged. A total of $2,700 was collected by the end of the event, along with this 36 brand new donated mattresses delivered from Mattress Firm. This year David eagerly bumped up his goal to 20 miles, so let us all help out by pushing those donations to the next level.
Mission 911, the Coastal Bend Chivers, and all volunteers will all meet at South Bluff Park (Park Ave & S. Tancahua), after the ride, around 11am for lunch and a message from Mission 911’s founder, Tony Reyes. Those going through the mission will then share with us their stories. If time permits after the meet and greet, Mission 911 plans to host a tour of the facility.
The admins of Coastal Bend Chivers have partnered up with Mission 911 to organize and help run this event. Long story short we need as much help as we can get! So, if you have a few hours to spare on November 9th, we would love to see you there.
*If interested in volunteering, getting involved, or simply wish to attend the event, please call Tony Reyes, Mission 911 founder, at (361) 882-0911 or head of the Coastal Bend Chivers, Gavin, at (361) 229-2924.
Hope to see you all there!
