We are aiming for our 1973 FJ55 Land Cruiser, Boarchata, to be the first vintage class vehicle to finish the Baja 1000since the class was introduced five years ago.
While racing, we’ll be raising awareness and money to complete construction, and open the doors of the Buena Onda, a community center in Punta Colonet, right along the route of the Baja 1000.
Originally a fishing village, through agriculture Punta Colonet grew to a community of approximately 4,000 people.
The majority of people in Colonet work in fields picking tomatoes, peppers, onions, etc. Workers earn approximately $16 a day and often work 12 hours in a shift, 6 or 7 days of the week.
The Buena Onda Project
Buena Onda’s mission is to strengthen and empower families in Punta Colonet, and to invest in its emerging generation.
The team is building a community center to serve the families of Punta Colonet. They are currently in construction of the second floor, and after that the roof. Then, doors and windows, kitchen and bathrooms, and the septic system.
While they’ve made great progress over these past few years, they need all of us to help get them across the finish line, open the doors, and begin serving the kids and families of Punta Colonet.
Head over to TheBuenaOnaProject.org for more on the vision, and some great videos documenting the journey thus far.
We will come along side single moms who work in agricultural camps by providing free daycare services. These courageous and hard-working moms will no longer be forced to leave their children unsupervised
Buena Onda will be the place to be for Middle and High School students. Weekly events will be designed to be fun and inspirational.
Internships will be available for both Mexican and American graduates who qualify and are interested in learning to launch and run a facility such as ours.
Let’s Do This. Together.
