The season started with a bang. Ann’s Angels traveled to Markham park in Ft Lauderdale Florida to team up with Memorial Rehab Adaptive Sports Expo to bring adaptive waterskiing back to the Southeast coast of Florida. It was a great day as we introduced 23 new people to the feeling of freedom and joy on the water. Ann’s Angels took 23 rides out to ski in 4 hours. An awesome job for the Angels network. We were also blessed with a great group of able bodied side skiers, a superb boat driving team, top notch registration crew, an equipment coordinator who is top’s and a group of volunteers from Nova Southeastern University in conjunction with Ann’s Angels leads to help make lasting memories for everyone. We would also like to thank Ray Shippman and Memorial Rehab Institute for bringing us back to the Southeast of Florida.We are charged and ready to head into the rest of the 2017 season. Hope to see you on the water. For more information please check out the video here on youtube. https://youtu.be/mUVEJF4hAEc
Ann’s Angels would like to Thank Performance Ski & Surf, Above the Wake, HO and Hyperlite for the new life jackets and Connelly Skis for the new tube, ropes and bindings Velz printing for the amazing work on our new shirts.
The day started with a whirl wind of excitement. It was the day that our friends from Spina Wheel Chairs 4 Kids came to play on the water with Ann’s Angels. It was a great day with a lot of water skiing, food and laughter on Lake Silver in Winter Haven Florida. It was amazing seeing several of our friends get out on the water. The Smiles that are seen. The feeling of freedom it gives them from their wheel chairs or other devices is awesome. Jonna Meschke did interview videos with the kids and parents. Even though this was a makeup day for the clinic because of hurricanes earlier in the year it tuned out great. Ann’s Angels was very happy to have Wheel Chairs 4 Kids spend the day on the water with and we look forward to seeing them next year.
“. . . whether or not it is clear you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”
I used to believe these words. Should I still believe them?
I recently read an article that asked if it is still a beautiful world? My answer is YES. I work with an organization that shows just how beautiful and selfless people in this world can be. This picture right here shows that:
Ann’s Angels AWF took to the water of Ochlockonee River in Sopchoopy Florida on April 8th 2017. It was a cool morning starting out but warmed up throughout the day. We had the pleasure of working with long time partners and friends the Florida Disabled Outdoor Association. All the participants that came out that day enjoyed their adventure on the water and all the other outdoor activities that were provided. A special Thank you to the Volunteer Staff from Ann’s Angels who traveled north to Sopchoopy. You are all truly amazing Angels.
