ABOUT HEROES ON THE WATER
Heroes on the Water, a 501(c) 3 Veterans’ charity, successfully applies a simple solution to a complex issue – giving Veterans, first responders and their families a path to a successful life. They help warriors relax, rehabilitate and reintegrate through kayak fishing and the outdoors.
Heroes on the Water’s kayak fishing experiences are proven to reduce the impact of post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury. Participants do not need any experience with kayaking or fishing, and adaptive equipment is available. The most important part of the experience is that each participant receives individualized focus. If they want some alone time, that is fine. If they wish to connect with other like-minded individuals, that is available as well. Every person is unique, and therefore their experience should be as well. There is no pressure, but rather an acceptance that transcends to a peaceful, positive experience.
