Surfers for Autism
Surfers for Autism is an independent non-profit organization created by a group of surfers in 2007 with the idea to help children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. These surfers put on surfing events that introduced Autistic children to surfboarding as a way for them to feel normal and develop confidence with themselves. Apart from surfing events, Surfers for Autism holds charities, fund raisers and other events to raise money for research and advocacy of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
"Venice Surfs for Autism" is a group project for my Public Relations Fundamentals class. My group chose Surfers for Autism as our organization to create a new event for. The mock proposal below is an imagined event, from creation to execution details, called "Venice Surfs for Autism." This proposal is strictly for class purposes and in no way approved by Surfers for Autism.
