Thanks to all of you that make Wake the World so awesome! It’s hard to believe that just a few years ago, 8 friends with boats got together to take some kids from the children’s home out for a day at the lake and now there are over 300 boats with 30 events in 23 states and Canada! We are already working on brand new events for next summer in Minnesota, South Carolina and in the Sacramento area. We are also slowly expanding our handicap/wounded warrior program as well.
Boat owners are awesome! They are the most encouraging people on the planet (how many times have you encouraged someone to “try it one more time”). That encouraging attitude combined with kids that need it the most is life changing for everyone. www.waketheworld.org

What a fun organization doing great work for kids who wouldn't have the opportunity otherwise.

I'm very proud to know two boat owners in this vid - a Malibu owner and the Nautique. Both are great guys - what an inspiring way to reach out to others around your community. I hope I get to do it this year!

We have gone the last 3 summers to the July event, and last year we also did the June event. 4 total and we wouldn't miss it for anything.

Its true when you hear, you as the boat owner get just as much out of it as the families themselves do.
