Island Water Sports hosted its third annual Daytime Radness on October 18th from 6:00am-9:00pm. By the end of the night over 8,000 people had filed the parking lot and store. During the day, attendees were able to skate the VANS half pipe, participate in the Road to Radness street course, and visit their favorite vendors like Quiksilver, Roxy, Volcom, and Reef. Everyone in attendance helped to exceed the fundraising goals for the Calvary Chapel Benevolence Care Church and Carolyne Koos
Caroline Koos: Carolyne, a survivor of Systematic Lupus, gave birth to two sons, Jack and Christian, but Christian would only live to be 2 years old due to a rare neurological disease called Leukodystrophy. After his death, Carolyne and Ben started their own nonprofit charity called Embrace Life Children’s Foundation to help children with chronic and terminal illnesses. After starting their charity Carolyne was diagnosed with Dysautonomia and Sjogren’s Syndrome. Carolyne is currently seeking assistance to attend the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota for specialized medical treatment.
