On July 22nd, IMA will be holding its Annual 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.
IMA is a global organization dedicated to improving the lives of young girls and women in Guatemala, Central America through education. IMA operates a non-profit school for girls where their health is maintained, their nutrition is supervised and they are provided a first-world education in tandem with tangible skills that enable them to become contributing members of society and the formal economy.
Ninety-four percent of all charitable donations are put towards providing education, food, medical assistance and day-to-day necessities for these young children. Our organizational and leadership staff are wholly comprised of volunteers so that funds go where they are needed: Directly to IMA's school.
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.
