Xander Takes a Ride with Surfers Healing

video
Every year an amazing group travels around the country and world to provide people with autism and their families a fantastic day at the beach. The group is called Surfers Healing. It is made up of incredible volunteers who do everything from checking people in to taking people with autism surfing. The families and their children are treated with respect. It's a safe haven where there are no judgements, only love, joy and acceptance. For more information on Surfers Healing, click on the picture of Xander and Izzy from 2008.


This was Xander's 4th year and it was the first time he actually put his feet on the board. In the past, he would lift his feet up so his surfer would have to carry him the entire time. Another wonderful year.

Thank you, Surfers Healing, for all you do!
