The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. The Charlotte Chapter promotes the mission and values of the Surfrider Foundation to the Greater Charlotte area, by building a strong membership and chapter network. Additionally, we provide educational awareness around the issues that are detrimental to our coasts and waterways and partnering with coastal chapters during campaigns. The Charlotte Chapter implements new campaigns that not only improves the lives of our residents and visitors, but ultimately improves the purity of the world’s oceans. This is our passion largely in part due to the connection between Charlotte’s local lakes & rivers to the ocean.
Polo for Life presents the Monarch Fund, a recently established fund dedicated to families who desperately need help getting back on their financial feet after their child has completed cancer treatment. Motivated by the knowledge that approximately 50% of all families facing pediatric cancer will be forced to file bankruptcy, the Monarch Fund will directly assist and restore hope for families that have been financially crippled by a cancer diagnosis. All funds will go directly to families in need who are referred from our partnering organizations.
