I am truly lucky to be a part of Freedom Waters Foundation; this amazing organization and the people within it have changed my life. During my first volunteer meeting in fall of 2011 I began to hear the passionate testimonies given by volunteers, board members, and participants about what they loved about FWF. I became inspired to be a part of it and dove right in. As of January 2012 I was hired part time as an employee and began to help set up the programs and events for the year. Freedom Waters Foundation has given me the opportunity to provide a day of fun, healing, and joy to individuals' and their families' lives. To see the camaraderie of a group come together from everyone from a child with a life threatening illness, a person with a disability, their family, the boat crew, and the FWF representative(s) is truly astounding. Freedom Waters Foundation offers the environment and opportunity for everyone to come together and share the love, understanding, and acceptance that makes this world a beautiful place.
