AmpSurf NY Bronx VA Clinic Aug. 27th Beach 67th St. Rockaway Beach, NY

A beach day sharing the healing power of Adaptive Surf Therapy with disabled Veterans from the Bronx VA and greater NY VA System

 

We will be doing our Learn to Surf Clinic in partnership with the New York VA System for disabled Veterans from the Bronx VA and the surounding area. Veterans are invited to participate and to sign up through the VA system.

AmpSurf will only be handling the volunteer sign ups for this event and we will need Set-up help, Instructors, Water assist, Beach Support, Booth help, Tear down and more.

AmpSurf’s mission is to Promote, Inspire, Educate, and Rehabilitate (PIER™) all people with disabilities and their families through adaptive surfing and other outdoor activities to keep them focused on their abilities, not their disabilities.
