I found my beach family! A perfect combination of surfing and dancing!!
I met Maui Goodbeer shortly after moving to Miami and learned about his incredible non-profit organization StreetWaves. After his brother was brutally murdered by a 16 year old gang member, Maui promised to make a difference by dedicating his life to helping at risk youth who live in inner cities.
StreetWaves is committed to mentoring children and teens from under-resourced communities by offering them free educational ocean experiences where they learn to surf, paddleboard and sail. Some of these children have never been to the ocean and they only live 3 miles away from South Beach.
I knew right away I wanted to volunteer and now I am so excited to personally bring my passion for dancing into the mix! We are going to party and dance on the beach after catching some waves!! To compliment the benefits surfing provides (e.g. confidence, empowerment), dancing allows freedom, expression, and creativity. I should also note how much FUN this is for everyone!!
I feel fortunate to be part of a community so full of love, inspiration and positivity.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal to support this fun and effective program!!!! A donation of any amount makes a big difference. Thank you for your generosity!
