Wake the World, TX 2011 – July 18, 2011
This was our second year to be involved in this fabulous event. The event not only supported one childrens’ home, but two this year. Next year we are hoping to grow it even further and reach more children. The event is focused on giving the children a memory making day at the lake. So many children who grow up in loving environments get at least one day at a lake, ocean, river, etc…sometime during their childhood. This event provides a day for those children who may not have had such a chance.
The day started with ice breaker games to get the kids comfortable with the volunteer boat drivers and crews.
Then they all went out to enjoy the water until lunch. After a great lunch provided by Wahoo’s the kids had the opportunty to go back out on the water for another attempt at riding a wakeboard, tube or whatever else they wanted to do in the water. Before the boats got out of the water the kids all had the fun of tieing the boats together and all swimming together in the lake. Once the day was complete they had a wonderful steak dinner with all the fixin’s. A great day was had by all!
