Heroes on the Water Ft. Gordon Chapter Saturday, March 23, 2019 McDuffie County PFA
OUR MISSION To help warriors relax, rehabilitate and reintegrate through kayak fishing and the outdoors. HOW WE HELP Since being founded in 2007, Heroes on the Water has been organizing no-expense kayak fishing trips for active-duty military and veterans of the U.S. armed forces and their families. In 2018, we began serving first-responders and their families through the same proven ecotherapy. Heroes can reflect in solitude or connect in groups as they learn kayaking and kayak fishing basics. Recurring activities give heroes and their families camaraderie and a lifelong social network with like-minded people. Plus, no experience or equipment is needed, and kayak fishing is adaptive to those with disabilities. Showtime for volunteers and guides is at 0700. Showtime for participants is at 0800.
