Folks who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis have the opportunity to get free surf lessons Friday, August 24, at Surf Experience Day at Galveston State Park. Professional surfers from Hawaii and California will be on hand for this amazing opportunity thanks to an organization they started, Mauli Ola. Participants in Surf Experience Day will get free goody bags from the surfers along with posters, pictures, and autographs.
Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited disease affecting the lungs and digestive system of children and adults. Anyone wishing to participate can register online here and get a doctor’s release form. Don’t miss the fundraising events for CF research August 24-25 in Galveston. Thanks to research, the average life span for folks with CF is now in their 30s and 40s, where it used to be elementary aged.
Mauli Ola started when professional surfers banded together to introduce surfing as a natural and free breathing treatment for those with CF, thanks to the saline in the salt water. They are committed to giving their time and support to not only help those with CF but also raise money for CF research. This is the third year Mauli Ola has come to Galveston.photo courtesy Mauli Ola Foundation
