Miss San Pedro Faith Edgar spearheads Cruise for a Cause to help the needy in San Pedro


The island’s beauty ambassador, Miss San Pedro 2022-2023 Faith Edgar, has embarked on a project called ‘Cruise for a Cause,’ raising funds to help those in need. Edgar has partnered with X-Site Belize Sailing & Adventures to host the charitable sailing trip at least once a month. All proceeds from the sailing trip are donated to a person or family from San Pedro Town who need urgent assistance.
The most recent activity was held on Sunday, September 25th, and raised $2,700. These funds will go to islander Arcenia Rivero, a single mother battling stage two lymphoma cancer. The proceeds from the cruise will help Rivero with her medical bills and expenses. According to Edgar, Cruise for a Cause started as a project to send children to school. The project has now expanded to include people who can prove they are in immediate need. Edgar explained that those persons in need are identified, a date is set, and the fundraising sailing trip is organized.

Affordable and fun sailing trip
The fun sailing trip only costs BS$100 and promises lovely views of the island’s Caribbean coast and the barrier reef. The day trip is aboard a beautiful and spacious catamaran that cruises the sea’s pristine waters, making stops at different areas for a swim. To participate in the upcoming Cruise for a Cause, stay tuned to X-Site Belize Sailing & Adventures Facebook page and Miss San Pedro page. Tickets can be purchased at the Xsite Belize Sailing & Adventures office in the downtown area.
The day trip includes swimming and fun water activities. There are drinks and snacks included as well. Edgar is pleased to host such a project and be able to help. Miss San Pedro invites everyone who can help to support the initiative whenever it takes place. The other sailing trip could tentatively take place next month.
Edgar thanks everyone who has been supporting the worthy trips by purchasing tickets. The island beauty ambassador also thanks Xsite Belize Sailing & Adventures for their continued support.
