Cover of NC CatholicThe July Carolina Catholic show features an interview with two teachers from St. Mary Catholic School, Jack Viorel and Kevin Murphy, who also happen to have a love for surfing. They were the feature article in the May 2010 NC Catholic. Jack and Kevin also are directors of Ocean Cure, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing surf camps to medically fragile and at-risk youth. Ocean Cure has an impressive outreach surf program offering charity surf camps for children infected with HIV, Autism, and Cerebral Palsy among other illnesses as well as our Wounded Warriors, Special Olympics, the visually impaired, CARE, and other groups that minister to the medically challenged. These camps are offered at no cost to the participants.

Ocean Cure also donates time, money, and equipment to various other surf charities such as Surfer's Healing and Life Rolls On in the belief that  the ocean has powerful healing properties and that learning to surf can have a positive effect on a person's physical and emotional health and well being.

When Ocean Cure donates surf lessons or surf camps to particular groups or individuals, Ocean Cure provides all the funds necessary to make it happen. Ocean Cure works directly with Wilmington’s number one surf and kiteboard school, Indo Jax, to provide participants with all the necessary equipment and instructors to make the surf experience fun, safe, and uplifting. We also leave each student with a little gift upon completion of our surf course, all at no cost to them.

Ocean Cure is able to do this through generous donations from individuals and businesses that contribute to their charity surf programs. Ocean Cure is a non-profit and your donations are tax-deductible.
