When people are experiencing a disability, it is very easy to become discouraged and lethargic. This is why Shared Adventures has been creating opportunities for disabled people since 1994.

Our founder, Foster Andersen, knows first hand the importance of creating a life of joy and adventure. He survived a spinal cord injury as a teenager, and because of support he received from friends, family, and community, went on to become an inventor, found a company, travel, and enjoy countless recreational activities. A new adventure is always on the horizon.

We provide these adventures with the help of our community. Creating a more accessible world isn’t cheap or easy, but it’s important. Our sponsors and donors help us because they also believe in an accessible world.

Donating to Shared Adventures isn’t just going to help us as an organization. It’s going to give our participants the ability to play and feel joy. It’s going to make our world a better place.

Day on the Beach Donations

Day on the Beach is the foundational event of the Shared Adventures program.

We organize this day to create the opportunity for disabled individuals to participate in ocean sports such as kayaking, outrigger canoeing, surfing, and SCUBA diving, as well as cruising around the sand on beach wheelchairs.

The impact of this event is immense. Many people who have physical and mental challenges rarely have the chance to cross over the sand to the water. By offering this event in a safe, accessible environment individuals are able to forget any obstacles they may have. At Day on the Beach, they are free to enjoy the beauty of our coast from a new perspective and experience the unique sight and sound sensations that they would otherwise never know.

Day on the Beach is 100% FREE to Shared Adventures participants and their families/caregivers. Your donation can help keep Day on the Beach around for years to come! All donations are tax deductible, acknowledged in our Day on the Beach publicity, and are greatly appreciated.
