The Surfers For Autism mission is to unlock the potential of people with developmental delays, support advocacy for autism issues and scientific research. Their focus is to eliminate stigma through public awareness and education and to unite communities through volunteerism. On September 8th, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., join us on the beach area south side of Walter W. Parker Pier & Pavilion. This is fun and educational for special needs children and their families.
The minimum age to participate is 4 years old. Each child must have an IEP qualification. If your child CANNOT swim, you must bring a Coast Guard Approved PFD (Personal Flotation Device). Parent must process the registration and fill out information AS THE PARTICIPANT – using the participant’s name and birth date. At the end, fill in parent or guardian name and contact information. The waiver is now done online, you no longer need to bring it with you – you should print one for your records.
The minimum age to volunteer is 10 years old. The majority of volunteers needed are in the water. You do not need to know how to surf to volunteer. We need to have volunteers at the shoreline and mid break. If you are not willing to volunteer in the water, please do not register. If you are over 18, fill out all your information and agree to the online waive. You should print one for your records but you do not need to bring it with you to the event. If you are a minor under the age of 18, you will fill out the information on eTOTALPlan with your information and your parent’s name and contact information. NOTE: Your waiver must be signed by a parent and NOTARIZED prior to the event. Bring the signed and notarized waiver with you to the beach. IF YOUR WAIVER IS NOT SIGNED AND NOTARIZED, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO VOLUNTEER!
Of course, you’re going to need a fantastic place to stay for this great event, so give me a call. The beach goes on all year long, so come on down and join in!
