Monte Cook III.  

Proceeds from Race Around the Marina Paddle Board Competition will provide funds to purchase one or more Affordable Homes 4U for military veterans in need; while raising awareness of their plight.  The beneficiaries of SOS are veterans of US engagements and wars in Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq.  The national fundraising initiative, “SOS Race Around the Marina” will see competitors navigating two courses inside the marina, a 2.5 and 5 mile, with sprints in front of Burton Chace Park.   

A Historical First   

Among those planning to attend are former  Mayor of Carson, Jim Dear, Lou Rawls Junior and Raye Holitt, (“Gladiators” star Zap).  Invited guests are Congresswoman, Janice Hahn, Louis Gossett Junior, Edward James Olmos and Judge Joe Brown

The day to afternoon activities will include various divisions.  Any one from 5 year to 85 years can win; as the person closest to their estimated race time takes the prize.   The wrap-up party will unfold at Burton Chace Park with live musical performances by the Jack Roberts Harvey Blues Band. A culinary presentation is being planned in association with several Food Trucks that define Los Angeles’ rolling dining experiences and field to table food purveyors joining Eco friendly vendors.  Also among those sponsoring Race Around the Marina are and, international aggregators of breaking news.  

“We wanted a way to show the government and private citizenry there are housing solutions that can conceivably provide shelter for everyone. A roof in a world as abundant as ours should be one more inalienable right.  AH4U structures can serve as clinics, dorms, portable and permanent emergency shelters, offices, public restrooms and, yes, ‘Home Sweet Home’.  If you can imagine it, PRBC Modular Eco Homes can build it,” according to SOS founder Monte Cook III.
