Charitable Group, “Wake The World” Provides Opportunities
Wake The World is a non-profit, charitable organization headquartered in Asheboro, North Carolina that provides watersports opportunities to local Children’s Homes. Whether it’s wakeboarding, wakesurfing, kneeboarding, water skiing, tubing, swimming or just hanging out in a boat, Wake The World provides opportunities for kids that normally would not have the chance. These events are possible because of big-hearted supporters. Currently, 100 percent of all funds donated are used for expenses directly related to the charitable events. Wake The World has no paid staff, just volunteers.
Greg Hodgin, director of Wake The World, has reached out to the industry and its participants and has received a great deal of support. He said, “I don’t want Wake the World to be my thing, I want it to be our thing.” If you would like to learn more, or find ways to help out, go to: http://www.waketheworld.org
