This day-long festival at the Santa Monica Pier has been created in order to assist individuals/families in kick-starting their New Year's Resolutions. To help support these goals, there will be free workshops and lectures focusing on various subjects (health and proper dieting, financial management, conflict resolutions, etc.), a free Polar Bear beach plunge, and low-fee physical competitions (soft sand run/walk, 10,000 steps walk, and a Polar Bear Swim) for those who want to begin the year with an athletic challenge. Participants can allocate $10 of the competition fees to one of these beneficiary charities: Challenged Athletes Foundation, Johnny G Foundation, Operation USA, Team Parkinson, and TreePeople. Enjoy the boardwalk and the sunshine and make 2006 the ?no-excuses? year for your resolutions! Call 310-474-4832 or go to www.resolutionfest.com for more information.
