Here at UHA Race 4 the Environment, we take pride in knowing our children, pets and family are living in a safe and healthy environment. As part of this movement we are in, we have recently tested beaches along the coast of Dana Point, California all the way up past San Clemente, California towards Oceanside. What we found is shocking and must be dealt with but we cannot do it alone! We need your support to make our beaches and environment a safe place for families and communities to gather together without the health risks that are lingering in our waters and beaches! We have updated the report and are exposing the results to the public in hope that we can join together to stop this wide spread of hazardous chemicals and pollutants.

On behalf of Race4theEnvironment we would like to say thank you to all who visited our booth for our Beach Clean Up and to all that volunteered! We were able to collect several bags of trash and were able to welcome several new comers to our cause! Stay tuned for more events and updates for our shopify link!

It is time for the Race 4 the Environment Beach Cleanup! 

Bring your family and friends down to the San Clemente Pier for a morning of community bonding and excitement as we take back our planet one beach at a time.

We’re in a race to protect our planet, our children and our communities from exposure to environmental hazards but we can’t do it without you! Join us at the San Clemente Pier Saturday, August 18th @ 10:00 am to help clean up the beaches as we say goodbye to summer! We will have supplies and a waiver to sign upon arrival, just bring your family and friends!

The meeting spot will be on the bluffs right below the parking lot. Parking can be crowded so it is recommended to carpool if you can. It is primarily metered parking but you are able to park in surrounding residential areas as well.
