Why Do This?
----------------------------
You'll be helping some children reach beyond their dreams - perhaps adding things to their bucket list. Imagine a blind child on a stand up paddle board. Or what it feels like for a child to ride in a kayak instead of rolling in a wheelchair. Or how good it feels to be cheered for and given a medal instead of ignored by their community.

At our last event, a little girls named Dorian had a near meltdown when it was time for her to leave early. She was having so much fun that she didn't want to go. This was despite the fact that she was going home to celebrate her own 5th birthday party with presents, cake, ice cream, and 13 of her closest friends.

Please come and make a difference!
