Located in the heart of the Florida Keys just 30 miles from Key West, Seacamp has been providing marine science and SCUBA education for 10-17 year olds for more than 50 years. Sadly, Hurricane Irma devastated this wonderful educational center, causing extensive damage and leaving the property in very bad shape. Insurance will not cover all of the expenses. Join the Southernmost Point virtual 5k/10k/Half Marathon and run or walk whenever and wherever you want to help get Seacamp back up and running. All participants will receive this 4″ Southernmost Point Buoy medal.
Seacamp Association, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to marine science education. The organization’s mission is to create awareness of the complex and fragile marine world and to foster critical thinking and informed decision making about man’s use of natural resources. As a residential summer camp and educational program, Seacamp Association offers extended sessions of hands-on, interactive education, taking advantage of the variety of marine environments surrounding their beautiful location in the heart of the Florida Keys.
A portion of the proceeds from this virtual race (at least $5 from each registration) will be donated to Seacamp. For more information about this charity or to make a direct contribution, please visit Seacamp.org.
