Day on the Beach Image

The 23rd Annual Day on the Beach was a huge success! Over 300 inviduals with disabilities participated in kayaking, SCUBA diving, outrigger canoeing, and beach wheelchair rides. For the first time ever, adaptive rock climbing was included in the experience! A record number of 250 volunteers came out to support the event. Please take a look at our Day on the Beach Sponsors page to see the individuals and businesses who made this great day possible!

Shared Adventures is so excited to announce that we have met our fundraising goal for the Human Race! Thanks to everyone who supported Team Foster & our Board of Directors!

Shared Adventures provided hundreds of activities and classes throughout 2014, serving over 2,000 participants! View our Year in Review to see a letter from Foster Andersen and an overview of all the activities Shared Adventures provided in 2014.
