Find Your Stoke - Surf Therapy
Fri May 1, 08:00 - Mon May 31, 17:00
Event is online
Find Your Stoke gives access to FREE surf therapy sessions which aim to heal, uplift and empower people challenged with disability, mental health and social-isolation.
By utilising the ocean and surfing as conduits to explore, stimulate and facilitate positive therapeutic outcomes, Find Your Stoke play an important role in under-served coastal communities in South Africa.
Whether involved in a surf therapy session as a participant, volunteer, donor, event sponsor or surf instructor - you will Find Your Stoke while being involved in this awesome charity.
While we are in limbo with our surf therapy sessions due to the Covid-19 pandemic and all South African beaches remain closed, the team has been working from home reflecting and redesigning some of the programs in order to grow the organisation and be able to spread the stoke to new coastal communities in South Africa.
Find Your Stoke believes that now more than ever we need to create more safe, structured and inclusive surf therapy sessions to help play a positive role in the well-being of all affected by Covid-19 in some way or form.
By supporting this fundraiser, you are playing a positive roll in the lives of people challenged with disabilities, mental health and social isolation.
Thank you for your donation.
