About Mauli Ola Foundation
The Mauli Ola Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded in 2008 to promote awareness of genetic disease and support for patients. One of the Foundation’s programs is Surf Experience Days that pair professional surf instructors and novice surf students who have cystic fibrosis to introduce them to the healing properties of exercise, ocean air, achievement, and fun in a supportive environment.
Surf Experience Days were created to get kids who have cystic fibrosis out into the ocean water (which is high in saline) and experience what natural therapies can do for their lungs. Kids who have cystic fibrosis respond very well to the salt water environment. The saline in the air and water breaks down the congestion that is in their lungs. This congestion is what causes them to have frequent hospital visits and leads to daily medication. With salt water treatments, their hospital visits are cut in half, leading to a healthier and more fulfilling life with fun activities.
