Special Surfers helps kids and young (and some mature) adults with Special Needs. Often these are people who, in their everyday lives struggle to feel like they fit, like the world has a place for them. When they come for an evening of fun at the beach, it’s all about them. There are no rules, no expectations, its all about having fun. That’s it. Many of their parents dream of watching their child excel at things average people take for granted. When they come to Special Surfers Night, they watch their children shine.
This is a local charity which I was exposed to through an amazing friend of mine, Tom Reynolds, who is a pediatric neurologist working at Maine Med here in Portland. Initially the conversation was about using my company, Hopsie (which is powering this page!) to help with the fundraiser, but after learning about the cause, I had to get involved deeper.
Any and all gifts are welcome, and Ill be sure to post some pictures of the next surf day to everyone that helps support me and Special Surfers through this page! MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL!
