Wake the World is a group of boat owners that provide watersports opputunities to residents of local Children's Homes. This started in NC a few summers ago. We are very excited about our friend (Ryan Caroll) in Texas picking up the program.

This program is extremely rewarding for all that are involved. If you are interested in starting something up in your state, please let me know.

That is Awesome!

I have been wanting to get involved with something like this for a long time. I just didn't know how to go about doing it. I'm in the Dallas area and would love to provide my boat to help out.!

I know that Ryan would be excited to hear from both of you.

The impact that you can make in these kids lives is incredible. The impact they make on you is life changing. Most of the kids have never been on a boat much less being towed in the water.

This is sort of similar to the NPO I am starting. I sent you a PM.

Does anyone from the area have any good tips on places to stay ? Hotels and such. Or can we just camp there at the Park?

Hey Bret, This is a Air Force Park, so "officially" you have to be active or retired military to reserve a cabin or camping spot. I am going to see they can make some exceptions for the event. If not there are several campgrounds close by but not too many hotel options. I will send you an email with some options.

Our local Fox station is airing a piece on Wake N Flake / Wake the World Monday night at 5:45. I will post a link after it airs.

Due to several tornadoes in the area last night, Fox 8 will not be running our story tonight. Maybe next Monday.
