Dr. Robert Hamilton, pediatrician in Santa Monica for over 30 years. His YouTube video demonstrating “The Hold”- how to calm a crying baby has over 19 million views! Dr. Hamilton also hosts an annual charity event to raise money to fund medical missions to Africa.
Walk to Africa is a fun, scenic, interactive 8 mile walk (2 miles for kids) along the beach and quaint city streets, with check points named after African cities the Dr. Bob's team has visited, where walkers get their event "passports" stamped. Dr. Bob chose 8 miles with the hopes that if 1,000 walkers came out and walked the course the group would collectively have walked 8,000 miles -- the distance from So Cal to Africa.
