The Shine Project Foundation Beach Fun Day is one of my most favorite and most fulfilling events that I am blessed to be able to cover each year. Not only do I get to see and work along my sister and family from the west coast, but I get to partake in such a fun event and service. My sister Cheryl and her husband Rob started and currently operate The Shine Project Foundation out of Carlsbad, CA. Their mission is to help bridge the gap between families with children with special needs and local communities by partnering with businesses and organizations to provide special enrichment events and opportunities. They started the inaugural The Shine Project Foundation Beach Fun Day last year in their hometown of Virginia Beach and look to make this an annual event on this coast. This year they teamed up with VB Surf Sessions to help the special needs kids have an amazing surf and beach day in Croatan. Thanks to all the volunteers and participants for making this such a special day!
