Aidance, Surfers Healing team for autistic children

Posted 5/10/13

WOONSOCKET – Aidance Skincare, a skincare company based in Woonsocket, is partnering with Surfers Healing Rhode Island to host a surf camp for autistic children on Sept. 14 in Narragansett.

Aidance Skincare’s contribution will go toward travel and camp expenses for surfers and their families.

The Rhode Island camp has grown from 60 children in 2009 to 170 this year with a growing waiting list. More than 700 people attended last year’s event to support the surfers.

"Surfers Healing has given our son a day just for ‘him’ to do something unimaginable. It is an amazing organization run by selfless, caring individuals with big hearts,” said Jonathan and Dawn Reuss, parents to camper Bailey Reuss, a 9-year-old who hopes to make 2013 his third year participating, according to a press release.

Camps are held throughout the country from June through September on a first-come, first-served basis.

All travel, accommodations, food, and surf camp expenses are fully covered by Surfers Healing, a national nonprofit organization.

“Aidance is proud to be a local partner of Surfers Healing RI, and we respect the healing power of nature,” said Perry Antelman, CEO, in a statement.
