Prudential helps Sunshine Kids learn to surf

A large number of agents and employees from Prudential California Realty recently collaborated with the Sunshine Kids Foundation, a charity devoted to children with cancer, to sponsor a two-hour surfing lesson for more than 30 children at the Pacific Beach Surf School.

The event featured lessons from American Red Cross certified instructors, a surfboard giveaway, food from local businesses and a donation of numerous signed copies of “Cabo & Coral Go Surfing,” a children’s surfing book by Udo Wahn.

“Watching these kids try surfing for the first time and seeing the smiles on their faces is an experience that I will never forget,” said Prudential’s Jason Leo, who helped coordinate the event. “Surfing is a relaxing and healthy activity that allows us to simply enjoy being in the moment. It was great to see these kids escape from the pressures of life and just be ‘regular’ kids for a while.”

The Sunshine Kids Foundation was established to make a positive impact on the quality of life for children receiving cancer treatments in hospitals across North America. With a substantial amount of contributions originating from the agents at Prudential, the foundation is able to sponsor a large number of trips, activities and events on both the local and national level.
