Kids with autism surf at Woodbine Beach in Toronto Add to ...

Surfers Healing, a U.S.-based nonprofit that offers free surf camps to kids with autism, came to Toronto's Woodbine Beach August 25 and 26th for their first-ever Canadian event. The camp was brought to Canada for a fundraising event called Aloha Toronto, which raised money for Surfers Healing and the Hospital for Sick Children. Aloha Toronto, which also provided free lunches to the kids who attended, is hoping to make their event -- and the Surfers Healing camp -- an annual one in Toronto.
