EAST HAMPTON VOLUNTEER OCEAN
RESCUE – SURFERS HEALING 2016
A TRANSFORMATIVE DAY!
On Friday, September 16, 2016, Surfers Healing, an organization that travels around the United States offering children with special needs, specifically those with autism, the opportunity to experience the wonders and magic of surfing in the ocean, visited our east end shores at Ditch Plains in Montauk.
Members of East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue were there in force to volunteer their time for this amazing event. From 8:00 in the morning to 2:30 in the afternoon, they assisted the children onto surfboards or transported them by jet ski out to some of the most talented surfers waiting to take them for the ride of their life.
Surfers Healing is making a difference in the lives of families and kids living with autism and other special needs.
Thinking in ones is where an effective change takes place.
One day at the beach, making a difference, one ride at a time!
This was a most perfect day!
