"The East End warmly welcomed A Walk On Water three years ago and it's our privilege and honor to be returning to this wonderful community annually to share the magic that is Surf Therapy," shared Steven Lippman, President, A Walk On Water. "The positive effects of an AWOW Surf Therapy days are beautiful to witness. From water safety to bystanders, everyone at the beach gets to be part of it, cheering on these incredible kids and adults, making the day special for the families."

On Friday,​ ​Sep​ember ​8​ ​and​ ​Saturday,​ ​Sep​ember ​9, AWOW will welcome a courageous group of kids and adults who will have the chance to "walk on water," with a little bit of help from AWOW volunteers. The event provides a real thrill for participants who get to experience the soothing and therapeutic effects of the exhilarating ocean through surfing and the chance for both athletes and their families to enjoy a day of joy, leisure and excitement.

The two-day event at Ditch Plains will take place from 10 a.m.​ to​ ​4​ ​p.m. and on Saturday evening, A Walk On Water Fundraiser will be held at The Montauk Beach House from 6 to 9 p.m. The benefit will feature a silent auction, raffle, music, art, craft, lots of good vibes, a Jack Luber DJ Set, and more.
