How It All Started
Why the Outdoors?
“Water Walkers has helped me build the confidence I need to do and become whatever I want in life. When I started coming to Water Walkers I could not swim. Actually, I was afraid of large bodies of water. I thought sharks were in the lake. I would watch my older brother wakeboard and tube on the lake, but I was afraid to try it. Well, over time I got help from Water Walkers staff and boat crew to help me get familiar with being in the water, and then it happened. I jumped in the water one day with friends and began to put everything together that Water Walkers had taught me. I kicked my legs and moved my arms like a rainbow. When I looked back I had moved far from the boat we were in. I had learned to swim! I love jumping off the second deck of the pontoon boat, tubing with the ski boat, and playing king of the water mat. I love Water Walkers, and because I’m a Water Walker, I can do anything.”
