Here at B. Swim HQ we are always looking for ways to give back to those who are volunteering for a good cause. This year we were proud to sponsor Amber Melfi who is an avid volunteer with Life Rolls On and Ocean Healing Group.
Life Rolls On was founded by quadriplegic surfer Jesse Billauer, LRO uses action sports to improve quality of life for people living with paralysis.
Ocean Healing Group (OHG) is an international nonprofit organization that provides once in a lifetime, Costa Rica based, adaptive sports adventures and quality of life programs to children with disabilities.
For this special event in Costa Rica, Amber was able to help paraplegics on to surfboards to feel freedom from their wheelchairs. We sent Amber with a box of B. Swim and were so thankful to be a part of this extraordinary cause. The trip was a total success and she even won an award for best swimwear! YES- we love to hear that.
Here are some photos from the trip and we hope you are as touched as we were. For more information on this organization and to see how you can get involved please visit: www.liferollson.org & www.oceanhealinggroup.org
