Support the Maddie James Seaside Learning Center and Win an Original Wyland Painting.

Big Train is pleased to help sponsor the Mile for Maddie event on May 19th in Dana Point, California. The Maddie James Foundation was founded by the parents of a five year-old California girl who passed away due to an inoperable brain tumor, but whose love of the ocean and its many creatures will live forever. The individual who raises the most money for this year’s walk will earn an original, signed Chinese brush art painting created by Wyland.  Wyland will personally award the prize at the Club Honu dinner.

The Foundation is committed to supporting the construction and ongoing operation of The Maddie James Seaside Learning Center (scheduled to break ground in 2012) at the Ocean Institute in Dana Point, California, one of Maddie’s favorite places.

The Foundation is also proud to partner with other ocean-minded charities and groups committed to bringing the ocean to children around the country, regardless of circumstance, to show them its many wonders and the importance of its preservation through dynamic educational programs.

Come join Big Train and a great group of amazing people and be a part of Maddie’s dream. If you are interested in volunteering at “a Mile for Maddie”, please contact the Foundation at
