A Walk On Water Just Made Its First Ever Stop in Jersey
I was pretty excited when Sam Hammer contacted me in April with an invitation to photograph a special event with his surf school. Sam explained they would be hosting A Walk On Water event — the first ever held in New Jersey.
After receiving the invite, I started researching A Walk on Water and I was really impressed with the organization’s work. A Walk On Water (“AWOW”) provides Surf Therapy to children with special needs or disabilities. The ocean’s transformative properties empower participants, who enjoy a much-deserved day of laughter, love, and acceptance alongside their family. For one perfect day at the beach, there are no labels. Everyone is an athlete. I’d seen photos in the past of A Walk on Water‘s events in New York and to me, the vibe looked amazing.
