A few years ago I was taking photos for a family that was new to the area at Sandbridge Beach. We got to talking and she said she was a exceptional children’s teacher, so of course I told her about Carysn. She said they were involved in the Best Day Foundation where they lived before moving here and wanted to start a new chapter locally.
About Best Day Foundation:
Best Day Foundation is a volunteer organization that helps children with special needs build confidence and self-esteem through safe, fun, adventure activities like surfing, bodyboarding, kayaking, snow sports, and more. Please join us in creating special days for children with Autism, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, blindness, cancer, spinal cord injuries, and other physical and developmental challenges.
In June, Carsyn was able to participate at the Outer Banks right by Jennette’s Pier. I can’t tell you how happy it made me to see him surfing. He had a blast. We couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous day. The weather was amazing and the waves were the perfect size.
Dustyn and Prestyn had fun playing in the sand too. Here is a little slideshow I made with the photos from Whitney Norko Photography.
