Mauli Ola Foundation To Hold Surf Experience Day In Santa Monica This Saturday:

The Mauli Ola Foundation (MOF), a public non-profit organization dedicated to assisting those with genetic diseases, will hold its 2012 National Tour’s Surf Experience Day at Santa Monica Beach this Saturday, July 14.

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at Tower 6 in front of the Annenberg Beach House (480 PCH, Santa Monica, parking lot 9)

This will be the fifth year in a row that MOF is teaming up with Perfect Day Surf Camp and The Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Professional surfers from around the world including Kalani Robb, Teddy Navarro, and Reno Makani will share their talent and time to assist the effort.

Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited disease affecting the lungs by blocking airways, leading to serious lung problems.

Clinical trials have clarified that inhaling saltwater mist has a powerful effect on the lungs; rehydration of the lungs allows CF patients to more easily eliminate the damaging mucus.

Mauli Ola Foundation, founded in 2008, promotes education and awareness of genetic diseases. Surf activities have been found to have a positive impact on these children; the exercise and fun involved in the activity encourage children and young adults to utilize natural therapies, thereby decreasing their reliance on medication treatments and living longer, more enjoyable lives.

Perfect Day Surf Camp is a Quiksilver & Roxy sponsored surf camp in Santa Monica and Redondo Beach that support non-profit organizations by offering a day of fun in the sun to create an environment where kids can be kids and forget about their illness.

“Our goal is to get individuals with Cystic Fibrosis stoked on surfing so it becomes part of their treatment,” Perfect Day owner Robbie French-Yrigoyen.
