33rd NKF Rich Salick Pro-Am

The 33st Annual NKF Rich Salick Pro-Am Surf Festival (Friday, August 31 – Monday, September 3) is one of the LARGEST surfing charity competition in the world! It's held at The Cocoa Beach Pier, featuring Professional & Amateur Surfing Competitions, Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP), Tandem, Skateboard, Entertainment, Family Fun & Volunteering. ALL proceeds go to the NKF of Florida to support programs in patient services, research, public & professional education & organ donation. The festival also strives to increase awareness of kidney disease w/ an emphasis on prevention & support for organ donation. 

Kidney disease kills over 90,000 Americans every year - more than breast & prostate cancer combined!  1 in 3 American adults have kidney disease & most don’t know it. We are looking for volunteers, sponsors & donations to raise money to HELP SAVE LIVES! Aloha & God Bless ~ Hope To See You @ Da Beach \m/
