When we volunteer our time, participate in fundraising events, and make financial donations to organizations that do the important work of serving others, we are giving life to our mission to have a positive impact in our community and on the world.
We here at StoreYourBoard are passionate about sharing our love of board sports with others. Thanks to our amazing friends at the Make-A-Wish foundation, we were able to do just that by supporting the dream of a wildly inspiring young woman, Delany.
At just 11 years old, Delany was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer. Her first response to the devastating news was “I want to be an inspiration”. What a fighter! As part of her story to inspire others, Delany wished fulfill her dream to surf in Hawaii despite her months of chemotherapy, surgery, and a prosthetic leg.
In partnership with our friends at Global Surf Industries, the SYB team helped equip Delany with her very own surfboard, gear, and travel bag (all in Delany pink) so she can complete her surfing mission in Hawaii!
Delany now goes by the nickname “Warrior (Koa) of the Waves”. She lives by her motto “anyone can do anything they set their mind to” just as she does wave by wave.
