Wavejets for Nathan and Patrick


My name is Ted Canedy and along with Tom Kirk we are trying to raise enough money for our two good friends Nathan Gocke and Patrick Ivison to have personal Wavejet surboards of their own. As many of you know I do a lot of work with people who have suffered spinal chord injuries and by raising this money for both Patrick and Nathan they will be able to go surfing on their own with the help of just a few people. Normally for them to go surfing it can take up to 8 people, but with the Wavejet it could be as few as 3.

The reason these boards are so special is because they come with a powerful jet under the board that will allow Nathan and Patrick (by pushing a button on their wrist) to ride waves without traditionally being pushed into the waves by family and friends. Thus giving them the independence to surf on their own terms.

As one can imagine this technology isn't cheap and therefore we have started this fundraising page. We are asking for donations as little as five dollars. So if everyone could just go one day without say a Starbucks coffee, a beer or cocktail, or perhaps even eating a meal at home instead of out on the town, we could take that money donate it to this worthy cause, and we can have these boards for them in no time.

So please make a donation today!!!
