OZPWC announced JSW Powersports’ fundraising ride for Hear and Say, one of the top pediatric auditory-verbal and implantable technology organizations in the world. The technology group has taught deaf children how to speak, listen, and hear since 1992. It also provides cochlear implants, which are amazing . Hear and Say’s website claims that this year, 1,500 children and young adults affected by hearing loss, will benefit from their services. Hear and Say spends more than $10,000 a year for up to six years to teach one deaf kid to learn to listen and speak. The organization relies heavily on fundraising events to offset costs.
JSW Powersports invited riders to The Spit boat ramp for the 56km journey, a lengthier route than they normally take for their charity events. The ride ended at the Southern Beach of Peel Island. JSW asked that participants familiarize themselves with the route prior to the ride to help cut back on riders getting lost. A team was on the water to assist riders who might’ve encountered problems. A $5 BBQ was ready when the group reached Peel. The money raised from the meal, the $20 donation/entry fee, and raffle ticket purchases all went to Hear and Say. The fundraising goal for this event was $1000, and riders helped reach it!
JSW is the number one Sea-Doo dealer in the world and is located on Australia’s Gold Coast. The shop has been in business since 1998 and has grown from a small work space into a giant personal watercraft dealership and Fox Boat distributor.
