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
