Warrior Surf Foundation and Mex 1 Partner on Fundraiser to Send Veterans on Surf Retreat

Published

on

Folly Beach-based nonprofit Warrior Surf Foundation (WSF) is partnering with Mex 1 Coastal Cantina on a fundraiser to send eight deserving veteran members of the WSF program, as well as WSF crew to Thunderbomb Surf Camp in Nicaragua next June.

Kicking off on November 11th for Veteran’s Day, $1 from every taco sold from Mex 1’s new Thunderbomb Taco (right, made with Baja battered Wahoo, red cabbage, pineapple salsa, and guac sauce) sold through the end of 2020 at all three Mex 1 locations (Sullivan’s Island, West Ashley and Park West) will go towards the cost of food, airfare, accommodations and experiences for this week-long intensive retreat.

“We are so grateful to be approached by Mex 1 yet again to help fund this incredible retreat for eight Veterans in our program,” WSF Founder and Executive Director Andy Manzi said. “I will personally never forget my first surf trip to Latin America, as it was a trip that forever changed my life for the better.”

“We are stoked to be continued supporters of Warrior Surf’s incredible mission,” Mex 1 Marketing and Beverage Director Morgan Hurley said. “We hope Charleston locals and visitors not only try this craveable new taco, but also consider donating a specific experience for a Veteran attending the Camp like a meal or yoga session.”

Warrior Surf Foundation has served over 500 Veterans struggling with PTSD and other mental health challenges through its surf therapy, yoga, and wellness programs. This will be the nonprofit’s first of hopefully many retreats to Thunderbomb Surf Camp where Veterans will focus on healing through psycho-education, positive psychology, and resiliency.

To donate directly to WSF and Mex 1’s Thunderbomb Surf Camp, with options to donate a specific experience for a Veteran like surfing for the day, a yoga session, or a dinner, visit https://warriorsurf.rallyup.com/thunderbomb.
