In 2019 Roxy officially launched the Roxy Davis Foundation, an NPO that aims to affect meaningful change in peoples lives by improving their mental and physical well-being through ocean based therapy programmes. Passion, Purpose, Possibility and People are at the core of the Roxy Davis Foundation.
The Foundation sustainably focuses on understanding, broadening, connecting, educating and sharing evidence-based best practice principles through delivering ongoing life changing ocean based experiences with the intended outcome of enhancing both people's physical and mental well-being.
Roxy's dream and the foundations vision is to make the ocean accessible to everyone. "Surfing changed my life, it was and still is my therapy, my medicine. My dream is to share it with others" says Roxy.
