Surfing Australia is undertaking fundraising for the Surf For Life Project and has the ambitious target of putting a further 2000 underprivileged kids through the national Weet-Bix SurfGroms program in 2016.
This is a short informational video showing one of the programs we ran as part of this project. 40 children from NSW visited the beach for the first time and enjoyed 2 days in the surf as Weet-Bix SurfGroms. In the past 3 years, we have run more than 60 programs around the country; worked with 24 national children’s charities; and offered over more than 3000 underprivileged children in five states the opportunity to experience the joy of surfing for the very first time.
The Surf For Life Project has been developed by Surfing Australia with initial support from the Quiksilver Foundation to enable underprivileged kids from all around Australia to experience the joy of surfing for the very first time.
In November 2012, the Quiksilver Foundation held their annual Awaken the Spirit Art Auction & World Champions Ball, and raised over $80,000 to put more than 500 underprivileged Aussie kids through the Surf for Life program. Working with a number of charities around Australia, Surfing Australia visited remote communities right across the country and offered local kids the opportunity to try surfing for the first time in their lives.
From Arnhem land in the Northern Territory to Wilcannia in the remote far-west of NSW, underprivileged kids joined the Weet-Bix SurfGroms program and enjoyed the ride of their lives! Surfing Australia now wants to continue this fantastic initiative into 2016 through the Surf For Life Project, but to do so we need your help!
By donating today and helping to raise enough funds to put a further 2000 underprivileged Aussie kids through the Surf for Life program this Summer, you will be helping to change their lives for the better.
