Champions for Health is the new name for the San Diego County Medical Society Foundation. As we have matured over the past 11 years, and as Health has taken on a greater meaning than just healthcare, we have been blessed with a growing number of champions working with us to improve the health of our community. Recognizing and incorporating all these important partners is what Champions for Health exemplifies.
Our partners have helped us to expand from providing access to specialty care through Project Access San Diego, to a wide variety of prevention programs focused on our community’s most vulnerable residents. One in five adults in San Diego County are at a high risk for poor health because they do not have health insurance. The vast majority are employed, but do not have access to health insurance through their employment. Others are family members working hard to raise their children, and the cost of insurance is too great a burden on their family budget.
Even with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in early 2014 and increased numbers of people eligible for health insurance, there are still be too many adults in our community uninsured, underinsured, or with limited access to care and preventative services. It is the working poor families that are the most often vulnerable to poor health. This gap is where the services of the Champions for Health are most needed.

The neighborhood of La Colonia (AKA Eden Gardens) is one of the oldest residential areas in Solana Beach. It was formed in the 1920’s by Mexican farmers who were hired to work in nearby lima bean fields or on the large ranches in Rancho Santa Fe. These farmers wanted their families nearby, hence the formation of La Colonia. The name Eden Gardens came later from a land developer who thought it would be a good marketing tool.
In 2011 community members formed the La Colonia de Eden Gardens with the intention of empowering the community youth in furthering their lives in a positive manner and improving resources available to all residents. Drawing from local resources, such as the San Dieguito Boys and Girls Club, the foundation has been able to make positive youth activities increasingly available.
One of the most amazing projects currently being worked on is the Community Garden. Board member Pat Caughey, President and Principal of Wimmer Yamada and Caughey (WYAC), is heading its development.

(Del Mar, CA July 29, 2019) The only solely children’s bookstore in the region opened up for business in Del Mar this month. It is located at 1414 Camino del Mar, Del Mar, CA 92014, in the heart of the shopping area and restaurants. Sandcastle Tales is just a few hundred steps from the beach.
The Rhett family has been in Del Mar for over fifty years. Alex Rhett, the founder and owner of Sandcastle Tales, draws upon her experience in International Relations, traveling, and teaching to inform the book selection and activities at the bookstore.
“The kids in our community are passionate about nature, animals and the environment. They are outside surfing, hiking, horseback riding, and exploring. That’s the kind of community we serve. Sandcastle Tales is the place where families can begin their journey of exploration. We have books on nature, animals, ocean, art, environment, and so much more. The kids here love to be outdoors and then grab a book and read to continue their adventures in their minds,” says Rhett.
“Our community bookstore encourages reading. I tell my kids: ‘When you read you get to go places and discover new worlds. You get to hear others’ thoughts and live their experiences,’“ continues Rhett.
When Alex Rhett was recently in Pittsburgh, PA. at the national children’s book conference sharing news of Sandcastle Tales, all of the other attendees who already were bookstore owners were agreeing that Alex’s innovative ideas are worthwhile for kids. “It is encouraging to confirm with other booksellers that what we are doing in Sandcastle Tales is special,” says Rhett.
“Books have come a long way, but still the basics are that you can touch and hold them. Some books add a button that offers music as part of the story. There are books that teach you values. But what makes a book special is how it makes you feel when you read it or hear it read to you,” says Rhett.
“We have a wonderful inventory of curated books for children, including classic books that evoke nostalgia for adults. The books that grandparents read to parents, and now parents read to their children. The Bible is my favorite book; I also enjoy reading adventures and environmentalist stories to my kids” added Rhett.
“This is my family business and it is my passion. Our wonderful library and Sandcastle Tales are all working hard to offer valuable resources to families in our community. I have reached out to the library and the Friends of the Del Mar Library to offer to partner with them to serve our community, and Sandcastle Tales will be donating books and more to the library. I have many business ideas, but to me, opening a children’s bookstore is one of the best ways I can give back to my community, and express my deep love and care for families.”
In addition to books, Sandcastle Tales offers multilingual story times, sand art, crafts, interactive sand play, toys, tasty frozen treats and candies, gifts and souvenirs; Spanish language lessons and other tutoring services are available by appointment. The bookstore hours are M-Sat from 10 to 5 pm, and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm. All current activities are posted on social media.
This is an extraordinary school with incredible teachers, a challenging curriculum, outstanding athletics and exciting missions opportunities. Our rigorous academic curriculum is taught through a Biblical worldview in a rich, nurturing community of teachers, coaches, mentors and peers all passionate about serving Christ. This is a place where you are comfortable enough to try something different and supported enough to get better at something you love. We are dedicated to expanding minds, building faith — and preparing you for the journey of lifetime.

The Solana Beach School District is proud of our students, appreciative of our families, and grateful for the comprehensive and generous support from our community.
