“THE SEAMARK RANCH LOGO IS A SHINING BEACON – A LIGHTHOUSE LEADING CHILDREN TO SAFETY AND SECURITY.”
Seamark Ranch, which opened its doors in 2007, exists to provide a stable home to children in need – children who have been through more than most of us could ever imagine. Some have been placed by the state, others dropped off at the doors by family. Whatever their situation, the directors and employees of Seamark Ranch work tirelessly to provide a safe place for those kids to learn, grow, and thrive. By providing a family style system, access to education, and the opportunity to learn life skills through agriculture and equine programs, Seamark Ranch seeks to “break the cycle of generational failure that affects the families [they] serve”.
As a nonprofit organization with a debt-free policy, Seamark is in constant need of volunteers and financial contributions. Wondering how you can contribute? Corporations can become Corporate Partners, while individuals can pledge a monthly gift as part of the Ambassador Program. Seamark also offers days on the farm, when families can visit the Ranch and help pick blueberries, blackberries, and more, depending on the season.
Sitting on 468 acres in Green Cove Springs, most people in our area have no idea the Ranch even exists – unless you’ve completed the MudRun that has taken place for the past six years. The MudRun provides the opportunity to support Seamark, compete in a fun event, and get a glimpse of the beautiful farm. CrossView Realty completed the 5K for the first time in 2019 as a corporate sponsor, and our team enjoyed the event immensely! Expect to have the time of your life, and to leave dirty and exhausted. The 7th Annual MudRun will be held on Saturday, April 25, 2020, and all proceeds benefit Seamark Ranch. We hope you’ll run with us next year!
