HEROES ON THE WATER Overview
Our mission is to help returning warriors relax, rehabilitate, and reintegrate through kayak fishing and the outdoors.
Our program has been privileged to serve over 9,276 warriors since 2007. In 2013, we provided 2,138 warriors and 499 family members a chance to unwind and enjoy the benefits of our kayak fishing program. As a national program, 37 chapters and 2 therapeutic programs deliver the program in 25 states. A network of 2,064 committed volunteers gave 26,127 volunteer hours delivering the program at a value of $578,452 that leveraged the financial investments.
Our therapeutic program is showing promise. A study of 79 warriors over 180 days that kayak fished as part of their rehabilitation demonstrated a 78% reduction in overall stress, 77% reduction in hyper vigilance, 63% reduction in avoidance behavior, and a 56% reduction in recurring nightmares.
2014 is proving to demonstrate continued expansion of our blueprint to reach more returning veterans and their families and help them reconnect in their journey home.
