Event description

Description

Due to high demand, we are limiting registration to 50 participants, PLEASE RSVP ONLY IF YOU PLAN ON ATTENDING.

*IMPORTANT* RSVP is a two part process, you will receive a confirmation email with another link to complete registration. Each person attending must RSVP individually with their own email address. Duplicate registrations to "save spaces" are not fair or allowed and will be deleted.

The first 50 volunteers to RSVP will be given a spot. The next 10 to sign up will be put on the reserve list, in case any of the 50 drop out. We will inform these volunteers that they will be included, or are on the waitlist by Friday the 13th, at 7 pm.

Before considering whether or not to sign up, please know the following:

The event will last from 7am to 4pm. We will begin introductions at 7am at our office in San Diego, head to the desert, leave the desert at 2pm, and be back in San Diego by 4pm.

We will not be crossing the border in Mexico.

IMPORTANT: during the event, you must have legal ID on you and proof of immigration status. If you have a visa or green card, you must have proof of that status as well as valid ID to participate. If you are a citizen, you must have valid ID on you (i.e. driver's license. For immigration safety reasons, those on DACA and others without legal status cannot participate. We pass through at least one border patrol checkpoint with possibly uninformed and/or poorly trained Border Patrol agents, so we must exercise an abundance of caution.
If you are a minor, you must attend with a parent or guardian, and they must sign and turn in your volunteer waiver. You must also have valid ID like a driver's license, or school ID AND birth certificate on you at all times.

We will have 5 routes of varying degrees of difficulty. For beginners, our easiest route will be 2 miles round-trip through flat dry riverbed.

There is risk of being stuck with painful cactus needles and bites from poisonous animals. The likelihood of the latter is low, but still a possibility. It will be hot out there. Keep in mind, the temperature and lack of shade could present health difficulties for those sensitive to heat and sun exposure. We will have safety monitors equipped with umbrellas and electrolytes, but that can only do so much for those with a low tolerance. For those that are sensitive, we advise you not to attend. We also advise those with serious health problems not to attend, and those recovering from surgery. Please use your best judgement when deciding whether or not to sign up. If you are unclear, please consult your physician.

For any questions or comments, please email Jacqueline Arellano at jacqueline@borderangels.org.

Thank you.
