Robby, who is now sixteen and a junior at Francis Scott Key High School in Carroll County, Maryland, and his family spent at week this summer at Believe In Tomorrow's House by the Sea.
Robby's week at the beach included fishing, golfing, playing tennis, riding the OC Rocket, biking on the boardwalk and hanging ten in the surf. When Kai Jackson from Baltimore's WJZ's newsteam asked if Robby fell off the board his first time in the surf, he replied "Yup, but I got right back up and actually rode some waves in. It was very cool."
