Ocean Lifeguards Wanted for Volunteer Positions!

Head's up, people! Just in from LACo Recurrent, Jeff Miller.

Subject: Jimmy Miller Foundation Ocean Therapy program; Volunteers Needed
Date: June 7, 2010


Hope you are doing well. Can you add a post sometime soon about the Jimmy Miller Foundation Ocean Therapy program. We are looking for volunteers for all of our summer sessions. See below and feel free to edit.

Hey Fellow Lifeguards,

As some of you know the Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation (JMMF) is doing some amazing stuff in our community with kids and with active and veteran wounded military personnel helping them heal from physical and mental illness and injury through surfing and ocean related activities. Many of you knew, worked with and competed with my brother Jimmy and many of you have helped us out or participated in one of our great events over the last five years. Volunteers are the backbone of our organization. Our organization is based on volunteers donating a few hours of their time to help someone learn how to surf and the participants and volunteers leave every session with a smile.

I am writing this email hoping to get on your calendars for one day this summer to help out some great people. Events take place at Rosecrans Ave in Manhattan Beach and also down at DMJs on the Camp Pendleton Base in Oceanside where you can surf and we score some great waves. Times are 9am to about 1pm and the days down at Camp Pendleton a bit longer with travel time and surfing/beers after and after.

Below are the scheduled Rosecrans dates and the not 100% confirmed Wounded Warrior Camp Pendleton dates. You can learn a lot more, see some great videos, see what you will be doing and get on our email list at A couple of hours of your time is more valuable to us and to the participants than anything else. Please take a look and your calendars and I hope you can carve out a few hours for a great cause.

To sign up for an ocean therapy session please either email me or Mark Gerold ( back with the dates that you will be able to help out. Feel free to pass this on to anyone in SoCal who may be interested. We would be stoked to get San Diego and Orange County support especially for the Camp Pendleton dates.
