Wake the World (WTW) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are a group of boat owners providing watersports opportunities to abandoned, abused and neglected children, as well as for the handicapped and our wounded warriors.
WTW began in 2008 with 8 families providing a day on the lake for some residents of a local children's home.
In 2013, WTW became the largest all volunteer organization of its kind, with over 300 volunteered boats world-wide!
We strive to make these events as easy as possible to host, and have a network of boat volunteers and sponsors to help support each event. We also provide insurance and liability waivers for every local event.
All WTW events are sanctioned and insured through the WWA (World Wakeboard Association).
