Thanks to all of you that make Wake the World so awesome! It’s hard to believe that just a few years ago, 8 friends with boats got together to take some kids from the children’s home out for a day at the lake and now there are over 300 boats with 30 events in 23 states and Canada! We are already working on brand new events for next summer in Minnesota, South Carolina and in the Sacramento area. We are also slowly expanding our handicap/wounded warrior program as well.
Boat owners are awesome! They are the most encouraging people on the planet (how many times have you encouraged someone to “try it one more time”). That encouraging attitude combined with kids that need it the most is life changing for everyone. www.waketheworld.org

I have been getting several emails over the last day or so. I've heard from people in Tennessee (3), Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota(3), Maine, South Carolina, Sacramento, and SoCal. If you are interested in participating, please email your info and where you are located. I will put you on our contact list and keep you informed on events being planned in your area. It's just like I said, "Boat owners are awesome!"

Awesome, I help with the adaptive clinic in Fort Worth along with a few members on the forum but honestly I enjoy spending time with the kids. Might see about volunteering a little more next year. Also wouldn't mind tossing a wake roll like the guy on the sky ski.

We helped out with the event at smith lake in alabama. My wife and I both had a great time, and we will definitely be back next year.

Looks like a great time! I'll have to see if there will be one close to me so I could help out!

We sure enjoyed Wake The World Lake Mead 2014. Forth year for us. Boulder Boats organizes it Lake Mead Yacht club lets us use their club house. Great Company, Great Cause. Lots of Fun.
