Berlin, MD – The WPS Surf Club and Volunteer Club presented Surfers Healing of Ocean City with a donation this week, raised by “Wear Blue Worcester Wednesday.”
On Wednesday, April 26, 2023 Worcester Preparatory School (WPS) held a “Wear Blue Worcester Wednesday” in support of Autism Awareness Day. In addition to wearing blue, the Upper School Surf Club collected donations to support the Surfers Healing Foundation, which works to enrich the lives of people living with autism by exposing them to the unique experience of surfing. Just over $1,100 was raised.
Surfers Healing is the original surf camp for children with autism. Serving communities since 1996, volunteers with the nonprofit travel across the country – from San Diego to Rhode Island – to catch the waves with camp participants. Locally, a camp is held in Ocean City, MD each summer providing nearly 200 children with autism, and their families the opportunity to go surfing.
