“My child overcame a lot of anxiety by touching fish and interacting with several of the kind people that we met at the event. My child even felt comfortable getting on a boat! This is something that was overcome in such a major way by the kindness and patience of the individuals at the event.” – Parent of Participant, Lake Lavon


“This was my first event, and it will not be my last. It was a life changing moment for me. The feeling of helping and teaching the kids is something that I wish I could feel and do every day.” – Volunteer Boater, Lake Lavon
