At Sneakz, we understand the kind of impact community events has on our lives. We have seen it first hand at 5k runs, themed experiences at the zoo, and at the upcoming event, Surfers for Autism at the 10th Annual Palm Beach Surf & Beach Festival.
Not long ago, we started learning that children with Autism have a natural affinity for Sneakz from moms that expressed their gratitude for our product. Over the years, we've encountered countless stories from customers about how Sneakz has helped picky eaters and children with sensory disorders sustain the complete, whole food nutrition they needed to grow and thrive - which is part of the reason why we are sponsoring Surfers for Autism.
About Surfers for Autism
On April 5, 2008, the inaugural Surfers For Autism event was held on the north side of the Deerfield Beach Pier were 40 surfers with Autism and related developmental delays hit the water with the assistance of 100 volunteer surf instructors and 500 supportive onlookers.
At an SFA event, surfers are provided a safe, fun, judgment-free environment where our volunteer surf instructors carefully guide them into waves. Our surfers and their families are treated like rock stars and enjoy a day filled with a range of activities. Depending on the location the day's activities may include stand up paddle boarding, music, face-painting, games, bounce houses, fire engine tours, paint the fire engine and much more. A catered lunch is also provided, all at no cost to anyone. This is an extraordinary day where children with ASD interact with typical peers and wow families with their capabilities. These events are examples of inclusion at the highest level.
Surfers for Autism's Mission
