Florida watersports park holds children’s charity event

The Orlando Watersports Complex hosted “SUP with a Cop Day” last Saturday to benefit Urban Surf 4 Kids.

The Orlando Watersports Complex hosted “SUP with a Cop Day” last Saturday to benefit Urban Surf 4 Kids, an outreach organization that works with orphan and foster children.


About 50 children, volunteers and local law enforcement came together to bridge community relationships through stand-up paddleboarding at the cable wakeboard park.

The event offered free SUP lessons for kids, a SUP Expo and a meet-and-greet with the Orange County Fire Authority, which brought a fire engine (with lights flashing and sirens blaring) for the children to see.

“It's been such a great experience to work with OWC,” Urban Surf 4 Kids founder Wesley Stewart said in a statement. “The empowerment of our foster youth through these events is nothing short of life-changing. Together we are bridging the gaps to make a lasting impact.”

“Our OWC team was thrilled to host this unique event that builds relationships and trust in our community,” Bill Yeargin, CEO of Aktion Parks parent company Correct Craft, said. “Our primary focus at our Correct Craft companies is ‘making life better’ and we are happy to use our OWC facility for this wonderful event.”
