About the Charity

JIMMY MILLER MEMORIAL FOUNDATION

The Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation (JMMF) provides Ocean Therapy, an adaptive surfing program to assist individuals coping with mental and physical illness. The purpose of our program is to increase perceived self-efficacy in our participants, through engagement in physical activity in the ocean environment, specifically, the activity of surfing. Just $2,000 provides an Ocean Therapy session for 10 Veterans or at risk youth with proven effectiveness. Please help JMMF fund 10 sessions next season by raising a total of $20,000.

MESSAGE FROM MORGAN SLIFF:

The ocean is a powerful place. A lot of us use it as a playground. Some of us need it like we need air. The fact is, the ocean is an undeniable therapy for many people battling physical and/or mental challenges.

There are so many stories to tell, and mine is just one. I started a surf streak years ago because the ocean was a place where I found a glimmer of happiness, no matter how hard my day was. 

Surfing and the ocean keep me in balance and finding the Jimmy Miller Foundation was like finding home. My little brother lost his battle with depression at the beginning of 2018, and a big part of my devotion to the foundation is in his honor -- and in honor of everyone, everywhere, having a hard time. I’m sharing my story to support this foundation and the support and care they give to veterans and at-risk youth.

I believe in the healing powers of the sea and think that everyone can gain something by being in the ocean a little more.

-Morgan Sliff

As Morgan explains,

"When I surf, I know it's going to be a good day. So I surf everyday."

 

As Morgan recently surpassed surfing 1500 days  in a row, she decided this might be something more surfers and more people should try. The deep connection to the beaches and the ocean is obvious, but what may not be as easy to observe is the power of the ocean to energize, rejuvenate and heal the body, mind and soul.

Together with Morgan and the many surfers who are joining her in this challenge, the Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation is striving to help individuals overcome mental and physical illness through surfing and interaction with the ocean environment.

We will be sure to include your video and images in our continuing updates and posts. Together, we can create a huge wave of support and bring new eyes, as well as needed funds to these organizations, while doing something you love!
