18th ANNUAL BAJA CHALLENGE
Once again, San Diego’s
real estate/building and related industries are being
challenged to build homes for destitute families in Mexico. Our 2017 goal is to build at least a dozen homes. No experience is necessary,
but it is greatly appreciated.
Each team is
responsible for raising the $5,250 cost of materials per house and providing a volunteer building crew. An additional $650 can also be donated, at each team's option, to provide an outhouse for the family whose home they are building.
