  The kids were stoked to present Rob Machado with our 2008 Peace Hero Award at our Walk for Peace. The Peace Hero award was created to honor men and women who inspire our children to be their best. Rob’s work with his Rob Machado Foundation and his less publicized efforts to make the planet a better place are definitely an inspiration. The mission of Rob’s foundation, "to provide funding and initiate educational programs focused on helping children understand their contribution towards a healthy earth," definitely made him a perfect Peace Hero. Rob was also chosen simply because he is a good guy with a gentle heart and a passion for living. Oh yeah, he’s an epic surfer, too! We could not think of a better recipient!

Throughout the festivities, Rob’s warmth, kindness and caring ways were evident as he graciously received his award. We are thrilled to have named Rob as our 2008 Peace Hero. Congratulations Rob!!

It truly was a magical day! Thank you to everyone who participated.
