Some of our guys attended this year’s Hand’s Along The Water in Cocoa Beach, Florida in support of our playground, the Ocean! Supporters met up at 10am sharp along the water at Lori Wilson Park to join hands along the water peacefully demanding action to protect our oceans and marine life! Let this be a message to our government
that the citizens won’t stand for whats happening to our environment!
We spend a great deal of our time living life with the Ocean. Surfing, fishing, it provides the majority of our oxygen to breath too. We must do what we can to make sure we do not ruin this planet for our children’s, and their children’s children. Which is why we are showing our support today, bringing awareness to the people in order to help facilitate and spark change.
“By locking hands we will show that we do not, and will not, stand for our beautiful beaches, wildlife, homes, and livelihoods to continuously be destroyed and impacted by the water released from Lake Okeechobee”
