Wake the World is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that began in 2008 with 8 families providing a day on the lake for residents of a local children’s home. Now, WTW is a group of boat owners providing water sports opportunities all over the world to abandoned, abused, and neglected children, as well as for the handicapped and our Wounded Warriors. This organization has grown to become the largest all volunteer organization of its kind, with over 500 volunteered boats worldwide! Pipe Wrench CEO Tom Cambron has partnered with “Wake the World Norris Lake, TN”, launched by a couple of Norris area families, to bring kids from local children’s homes to Norris Lake, and provide an incredible “day on the lake” experience. Every dollar raised is spent on covering expenses for the events, as WTW Norris TN creates lasting memories for these incredible kids.
