One Saturday a month a few local residents head to Hanalei Bay. We gather here to set up for “KORE” KAUAI OCEAN RECREATION EXPERIENCE.
An amazing group of local residents helps the physically challenged and special needs kids and adults get into our beautiful Kauai Ocean.
I have written about KORE in the past and how awesome it is. Today I wanted you all to hear from someone who has benefited from KORE so I called my friend Eric and asked him if we could share his “Kauai Ocean Recreation Experience” and he wrote me back and said yes. Thank you, Eric. Here is his story:
Aloha, I’m Eric Lazar and I want to thank Suzi for allowing me to share my story and how KORE has changed my life.
I have been paralyzed for 11 years. I have been fortunate to have KORE here on Kauai as they have assisted me in getting back into the water on a surf board. KORE creates a safe environment and it makes me feel so blessed and lucky to take part in this event every month. Without the help and support I would have never known how to get back into the water let alone get back onto a surf board.
I had been trying for over ten years to get back into the ocean surfing. It’s a feeling no one can really describe to you, and after I was paralyzed I couldn’t imagine how I was going to ever get back surfing.
