A few shore things to do with Dad in Mind

A History of Father’s Day

Father’s Day is celebrated in theUnited Stateson the third Sunday of June. It originated in 1910, a few years after the country began celebrating Mother’s Day. Father’s Day became an official U.S in 1972.

Things going on down “da shore,” that Dad might like to do – a little different than the BBQ or the bike ride. The case of beer or the golf outing.

They Will Surf Again, a no-cost program underwritten by Life Rolls On and generous underwriters, is the flagship program of Life Rolls On. TWSA utilizes a surfing experience to push the boundary of possibility for those with SCI. It’s not all about the surfing, it’s about showing that anything is possible!

Individuals with spinal cord injuries from around the country gather together for a day of surfing, inspiration and camaraderie. Some have not surfed since their injury, some have never surfed, some surf all the time despite their varying mobility. TWSA pairs roughly 7 volunteers with each surfer, for a day of excitement, joy, and best of all, surf!

Safety precautions and experienced watermen (and women), along with lifeguards are always present. No prior surfing experience is necessary.

volunteers needed !! please sign up @ http://www.liferollson.org/twsa Rambler Road Wildwood Crest, NJ
