Surfers Healing, a partner of the Double Good Kids Foundation, gives kids with autism the unique experience of surfing in the ocean. 

When I was told I had been picked to attend Surfers Healing at Wilmington Beach, NC, I was unsure what my experience would be like. I expected to see professional surfers with six-packs running in slow motion, their tan skin glistening in the sun. What I actually witnessed was so much more than I could have imagined.

The surfers and the volunteers created a beautiful atmosphere for the hundreds of families on the beach. Love, kindness, and patience were tangible, and you couldn’t help but be thankful you got to be a part of it. I left the event a different version of myself; more inspired and more motivated to show love unconditionally.
