The Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation Ocean Therapy is an adaptive surfing program to assist individuals coping with mental and physical illness in accessing the ocean environment. 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. Ocean Therapy Surf Sessions can be a one-time activity or ideally, an ongoing program where growth and healing can be seen and measured. In the past five years, the JMMF Ocean Therapy program has touched hundreds of children and adults, often with life changing results.
The Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation is a non-profit 501(c) 3 Foundation dedicated to honoring the life of our inspiration, Jim Miller, by supporting the healing of mental and physical illness through surfing and ocean related activities. Through recreational, educational and mentoring programs, the Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation will bring together surfers, educators, therapists, lifeguards and friends to help people affected by mental and physical illness feel the joy and healing power of the ocean and surfing.
The Foundation also supports other charities that support the protection, preservation, appreciation and safe enjoyment of the oceans, beaches and marine environment. Our mission is to carry on the legacy of Jim’s pure love of surfing by showing the ocean’s power to heal.
Through your generous support of the Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation we will be able to assist many more organizations and impact the lives of many.
