A PATH OF PURPOSE: GREAT SUCCESS FOR LAIRD
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 5 September, 2007 : - - On August 4th Laird Hamiltons A path of purpose charity event took place in Malibu, California. On Paradise Cove beach our legendary and generous athlete gave priceless surf lessons for his own autism charity as well as Beautiful Son and The National Autism Association. The large crowd of support included American tennis guru John McEnroe. The event raised an incredible $42,000 for research to heal autism.
Last Spring Laird paddled across the Manche (English Channel) to raise money and awareness for A path of purpose, and shoot for the documentary about autistic children and his humanitarian crusades. This year our unrivalled big wave rider cycled and paddled across the whole Hawaiian Island chain for the charity - 500 miles in just 5 days. An awesome performance!
