Pockets Full of Sunshine to host beach day

Around Town


Pockets Full of Sunshine will host the 2019 Fun in the Sun for Everyone Day from 10 a.m. to noon June 7 in front of Marriott’s Surfwatch on Hilton Head Island. 

Special-needs participants and their families of all ages and abilities are invited to join in this annual event on the beach in a safe and inclusive setting. 

Activities will include paddle boarding, boogie boarding, surfing, beach games and relaxation. Lifeguards and volunteers will be included in the event to ensure a safe environment. 

Adult or caregiver supervision is required for all attendees.

Shuttles from the parking lot to the beach will be provided. Beach access is wheelchair-accessible.

"Our mission is inclusion," said Laurin Rivers, one of the founders of Pocketful of Sunshine. "We strongly believe that everyone deserves to be an active participant in their community, so we want this event to bring all the community together — to blend people of all ages, all abilities, and let everyone have a really fun day."

Registration is requested by May 26 but can be taken until the day of the event. For more information, sponsorship opportunities and registration instructions, go to www.pocketsfullofsun.org.
