Wow! That's how many boats volunteered for Wake the World events last year! What an incredible season, you guys are awesome! Our Wake the World family is growing like crazy! We have had events in 18 states + Alberta, Canada. We have already added 4 new events for 2014, NW Oregon, Mississippi, Smith Mt. Lake, VA and Lake Gaston, VA. A Wake the World event is a day that will likely change your life. Check our website and see what all the fuss is about. www.waketheworld.org Here is a promo video from 2012.

Wake the world east texas was a great time. About 30 volunteers that have all pledged to help again in 2014. It really is a day that opens your eyes to how blessed we really are while making a child's eyes and heart open with joy.

Thanks Bill. I looked it up on the site provided and I think we are going to try and attend all 3 in Texas this year. This sounds like a great event to be apart of.

it really awesome! where are you located at?

we had several boats that drove almost 3 hours to attend ours this year. we only host appx 30 kids(with about 10-12 boats). it was a little intimidating at first but once you see the kids joking around and having a blast it is alot of fun to do.

I am located on lake Tawakoni. Its about an hour east of Rockwall, I am about 1.5 hours from lake Tyler. We will be there this year. Events like this, for me at least is what keeps this world/sport moving. I remember the day I was looking at the water wondering "Would I ever get the chance to do that". With it possible now, I would like to be one of the many people that answers that questions for others. I will talk to a few local riders from TWalk & see if we can get a few more boats out there from our lake. You can count on the EPIC making it out there.

Boat Bling was proud to support several WTW events across the country again! Had the privilege of volunteering in the past 2 local AZ events personally and had a great experience both times. Extremely rewarding. Looking forward to sponsoring more events in 2014.

My email has been a lot of fun in the last 24 hours! New events in Georgia, NorCal & Oxford, NC are looking promising. That would make 7 new events. That is a lot of happy kids getting an opportunity that would never happen without you guys! You guys are awesome!

Hey just so everyone knows... We also have an adaptive program as well. So if anyone is interested in hosting a handicap/wounded warrior type of event, let me know.

You guys are awesome! I have had some great messages....


These events are so incredible. Not only are you doing something awesome for the kids, you are also creating long lasting friendships. You will not believe the high caliber of people that volunteer for these events. I feel especially blessed because I know or have met most of them. There have also been a few romances that began at a WTW event.


I try make it to as many events as I can, but it has become impossible (and I am thankful that there are more events than I can go to) I try to make it to all the new events especially if they have never done an event.


The kids will absolutely melt your hearts......I absolutely love being there to share that joy!

Greg, I remember the E-mail you sent out about an Oklahoma one but when I replied I never heard back. Any word on if it will happen or how to get it rolling?

I don't have a boat this year but would like to come out to the IL event and help if needed!
