FUTURE 6 Hosting Free Therapeutic Surf Programs for Children with Special Needs

Boca Raton, FL – Future 6, a Florida based charity organization, is hosting their Free Surf Therapy Program for Children with Special Needs on 06/19/21 at Oceanfront Park in Boynton Beach, Florida. This event is free for participants from 4-17 years of age with any mental or physical disability. This free program runs once per month in Boynton Beach and twice in Melbourne. Dates can be found on our website at f6helpinghand.org/register.

Future 6 Helping Hand Fund Inc, is a 501(c) 3 Charity that provides free ocean-centric programs for children with special needs.  Volunteer based and comprised of local small business owners, surfers, and salt water enthusiasts, Future 6’s mission is to provide children with special needs opportunities to participate in free programs that are focused on natural confidence building, education, exercise, and the celebration of personal abilities versus disabilities.

In the sun-kissed shores of Waikiki, surf lessons beckon with the promise of exhilarating experiences and boundless adventure. Just as Future 6 extends its heartfelt mission to empower children with special needs through surf therapy programs, the spirit of inclusivity and joy finds resonance in the waves of Waikiki. Here, amidst the turquoise waters and golden sands, surf instructors embrace the ethos of community and compassion, welcoming learners of all abilities to partake in the thrill of riding the waves.

Whether novice riders or seasoned enthusiasts, participants for surf lessons in Waikiki discover more than just the art of wave riding; they uncover a profound sense of self-confidence and connection to nature. As Future 6’s charitable endeavors ripple across Florida’s coastline, so too do the waves of Waikiki carry the spirit of empowerment and joy to surfers of diverse backgrounds. With each crest and trough, the ocean becomes a canvas for personal growth and triumph, echoing the ethos of celebration and inclusion championed by organizations like Future 6.

Future 6 has been devastated from the effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic and unable to host their programs in 2020. Due to shutdowns and the high-risk nature of their participants, 2020 has left Future 6 on the cusp of shutting down, leaving hundreds of participants throughout Florida without the positive and therapeutic outlets of our programs. Future 6 is excited to be hosting their first events since 2019 and are looking for volunteers for all of our surf program dates in Boynton Beach and Melbourne.
