about wake the world

  Wake the World (WTW) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are a group of boat owners providing watersports opportunities to abandoned, abused and neglected children, as well as for the handicapped and our wounded warriors.

  WTW began in 2008 with 8 families providing a day on the lake for some residents of a local children's home.

 WTW is the largest all volunteer organization of its kind, with over 500 volunteered boats world-wide!

  We strive to make these events as easy as possible to host, and have a network of boat volunteers and sponsors to help support each event. We also provide insurance and liability waivers for every local event.

  All WTW events are sanctioned and insured through the WWA (World Wakeboard Association).

   We want to make it easy for YOU to be a blessing to others and be blessed by taking part in a local WTW event near you.
