Support for Team Quinn





History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: San Diego

Total Budget: $750

Area of Focus: None

Activity Type: RI Youth Programs (Youth Exchange, RYLA, Rotaract, Interact)

Summary: Support adaptive surf events for a San Diego local non-profit called Team Quinn

Coronado Rotaract has volunteered for this event in the past but not been able to fund the

equipment and resources needed to put on the event.

Each surf event requires adapted equipment to accommodate people who are physically

disabled. This includes beach/sand equipped wheelchairs, chairs, beach mats, safety

equipment and tents. We would like to be able to offer this event to disabled people who have

not been able to participate in the past and have wetsuits, life jackets and water shoes available

for them.

In previous Team Quinn volunteer days, Rotaract had volunteers in the water, and on the

beach. Both are equally important. 2-4 volunteers are needed per disabled surfer to facilitate

safety standards in the water. On the beach volunteers are needed to help surfers, dry off, get

towels, stay warm, get snacks, and communicate their desire to sit out, or jump back in the


Team Quinn provides food and drinks for the volunteers and surfers, along with rash guards and

other souvenirs/ goodies to take home. There are several donors and partners that work with

Team Quinn to make these events possible, though they are primarily through in- kind

donations. Team Quinn's biggest need right now is financial support to continue to put on these
