The Tamarindo Marathon takes place Sept. 22, and Team Housing Works from the United States will be among the runners. Housing Works is a healing community of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Its mission is to end homelessness and AIDS through advocacy, lifesaving services and entrepreneurial businesses. Runners will raise $1,000 each to participate in the half-marathon. If you would like to join Team Housing Works, check out the website at www.housingworks.org/events/detail/team-housing-works-costa-rica-half-marathon-2012 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re looking for a bilingual babysitting service in Tamarindo, you are in luck. Tamarindo Babysitting, run by Laura Albuquerque and her mother, looks after kids of all ages in Tamarindo and surrounding areas. They have their own transportation and are accredited in CPR. To contact them, email tamarindobabysit email@example.com or call 8932-6075 or 8846-4500.
Thanks to the efforts of one man named Roro, our beaches and adjacent areas are clean. He is out there every day picking up trash for our benefit. Money is raised to pay him through various activities, but there’s still not enough. So please, contact Chris Spilsbury to make a donation to the beach’s beautification. Her number is 2653-0289 and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Playa Grande now has yoga classes. Your Zen Yoga offers the classes on Tues. and Thurs. 8-9:15 a.m. Contact Dori at YourZenYoga@gmail.com or call 8977-7701.
