The Blake Charron Foundation was created to honor the memory of Florida native, Blake Charron, whose family seeks to ensure that his legacy will be tied to the conservation and restoration of the waters he loved. The Blake Charron Foundation supports environmental and social impact projects to conserve, protect, restore and enhance marine and coastal habitats and communities throughout Florida and the Caribbean, giving back to the locations that gave so much to Blake and his family.
Jolyn and I live in Orlando, but have spent the past 20 years visiting our Hutchinson island condo raising our sons, Blake and Chase, in the waters off St Lucie county. Blake loved the water and as a family dove off the coast of Florida from the Keys to Vero Beach. We have seen first hand areas of the sea that have beautiful reefs and those that don't.
In 2019, we lost our son Blake to addiction and it is a pain like no other. We look to honor our son Blake Charron’s life by using the resources that God has blessed us with. We saw the naming rights of the Singleton Tug as a Godsend given the timing, proximity and the unique opportunity to create life in the same Ocean Blake grew up in.
Jolyn and I are simply a vessel having been blessed to form the Blake Charron Foundation which desires to partner with others to create new life in our local waters through artificial and natural reefs and, in Blake's giving spirit, contribute to communities that he loved. We are thankful that our first artificial reef project is complete and we were able to assist in scuttling Tug Singleton.
Thank you for taking the time to read about Blake and the Foundation.
