The annual event helps kids with autism spend a day of fun in the sun.
With white caps crashing the shore, the high waves at Flagler Beach provided an entertaining day in the water for the many kids on the autism spectrum who participated in the annual Surfers for Autism event on Saturday, Aug. 25.
Volunteers spent the day helping participants catch waves on their surfboards, bringing pure joy to the kids' faces.
According to the nonprofit's website, "The Surfers for Autism mission is to unlock the potential of people with developmental delays, support advocacy for autism issues and scientific research. Our focus is to eliminate stigma through public awareness and education and to unite communities through volunteerism."
