May We Play Beach Clean Up & “Hands Across the Sand”

Saturday, May 20 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

Surfrider Pacific Rim is bringing you a fun filled day with our May We Play Beach Clean Up and “Hands Across the Sand” global initiative. This event is an intersection of two connected objectives: cleaning the beach and advocating for clean energy!

Beach clean 10-1130am
Hands across the sand 12-1215pm
Fun on the beach all day long!

Through our #LoveYourBeachClean program, we are working together to keep our local beaches healthy while raising awareness around plastic pollution and other damaging debris on our coasts.

Following the cleanup, at 12 PM we will be taking part in a world wide event “Hands Across the Sand”, where we will hold hands for 15 minutes across the length of the beach to send a message to our government that we need to adopt clean energy initiatives at a faster rate than what is currently being achieved.

This event is a peaceful gathering, where we will stand together and stand up for what we love! We encourage people to bring posters made out of recycled materials that send a positive message around the health of our coasts.

Following Hands, we will enjoy our time on the beach through local music, local food, surfing, volleyball, yoga, games and lots of warm conversations! WE NEED AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE TO COVER THE LENGTH OF COX BAY! So, Don’t miss this sweet opportunity to create a healthier coast and have a blast!!
