Day on the Beach Image

The 23rd Annual Day on the Beach was a huge success! Over 300 inviduals with disabilities participated in kayaking, SCUBA diving, outrigger canoeing, and beach wheelchair rides. For the first time ever, adaptive rock climbing was included in the experience! A record number of 250 volunteers came out to support the event. Please take a look at our Day on the Beach Sponsors page to see the individuals and businesses who made this great day possible!

Shared Adventures is so excited to announce that we met our fundraising goal for the Human Race! Thanks to everyone who supported Team Foster & our Board of Directors!
