SAN DIEGO, Calif. (May 29, 2019) -- FOX 5 San Diego came out to Del Mar Beach earlier this month to learn more about incredible triple amputee Jose Martinez and feature him in their regular sports series called "Home Town All-Stars." Jose is one of the countless athletes supported by the San Diego Festival of the Arts through annual donations made by organizers Torrey Pines Kiwanis.
Thanks to a $2,000 donation made to the Torrey Pines Surf Ministry on behalf of SDFA, Jose was able to get two new specially designed adaptive surfboards that meet his specific needs. Jose will also be traveling to Hawaii in June to participate in an international adaptive surfing competition thanks to generous support from Torrey Pines Kiwanis and San Diego Festival of the Arts.
Jose's incredible spirit and smile and infectious energy makes it easy to see why Torrey Pines Kiwanis and the San Diego Festival of the Arts are so passionate about supporting San Diegans with disabilities through adaptive sports programs. Good luck Jose and go get 'em!
