Goal $4,000.00


This will be my 6th year paddling to raise money for kids with autism. I got involved after I saw first hand what surfers healing offers these kids and because my cousin Taylor was diagnosed at a young age. Taylor has a true love for the ocean and has been lucky enough to experience Surfers healing. My goal is to never miss a paddle year after year because I have seen first hand what the ocean can do for people, it is an experience of unlimited potential. An unamed SEA member told me once his goal was to some day "write a check that fully funds Surfers Healing." My goal is to help them reach that goal. Please help me help other kids get to feel the inexplainable joy of the ocean. Every dollar counts!
