Upcoming Annual IMA Walk-a-thon at Bolsa Chica State Beach!


It’s officially summer and you know what that means?   IMA Walk-a-thon at Bolsa Chica State Beach! Help kick-start my IMA walk-a-thon campaign! How good will you feel after you kick in a little? Real.

I love all things IMA! I’ve been a volunteer and sponsor since its inception in 1983, and have worked “full time” for this amazing cause since 2008 and can vouch for the good it does in the lives of these precious girls. We value your hard earned buck and we know how to stretch it.  I get to love on these students all year long by helping from afar, and at least once a year, I get to do it up close and personal when I visit the school. IMA changes Guatemala for the better, one sweet girl at a time. I’m excited to be a part of it. I’d love for you to join in the fun.

On July 22nd, IMA will be holding its walk-a-thon at Bolsa Chica State Beach from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Any and all are welcome to participate and support our work in Guatemala. This is also a Family and kid-friendly event! Feel free to bring strollers or bikes for the kids. The Bolsa Chica strand and walk path are wide and paved all along the coast right along the beautiful state beach. Walkers can choose from various landmarks to set their distances. There are 2, 4 and 10 mile options or any distance in between to choose from. Bolsa Chica State Beach is conveniently two miles long.

After the event all are invited to stay and enjoy the warm weather and cool water. Bring your beach toys, chairs, umbrellas and anything else for some fun in the sun.

This is our biggest annual fundraiser and it is critical to keeping our programs strong and our girls in school. IMA is fully sponsor supported and relies on the efforts of its donors and volunteers to provide its exceptional programs in Guatemala. Join us today in helping change the lives of young women in need. Check out the link below.
