Surf dog Ricochet raises awareness for SMA

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A world famous service dog hit the waves in San Diego for a good cause. 

Ricochet hopped on her board at La Jolla shores and surfed with children suffering from spinal muscular atrophy. 

The disease affects cells in the spinal cord, making it difficult for people to walk, eat or even breathe. 

Organizers said getting in the water can be challenging, but rewarding experience for those with SMA. Cure SMA has made August SMA Awareness Month to bring attention to the disorder.
