Mission: Outdoor recreation heritage fund, inc. (orhf) was originally formed as paralyzed veterans of america outdoor recreation fund as a non-profit organization in washington, dc in 2002. It was controlled by the paralyzed veterans of america (pva), until its name was changed as above and control was changed to a new board. Orhf provides healing of mind and spirit through outdoor activities for wounded soldiers and veterans. Orhf is organized and operated exclusively for the purposes of promoting and sponsoring outdoor sports and recreation activities for veterans/troops of the armed forces. Orhf hosts warriors with all types of injuries: parapalegics, amputees, burn injuries, and tbi and ptsd injuries.
Programs: Orhf operates to promote outdoor sports and recreation programs and activities for veterans and other persons with disabilities who have suffered spinal cord injury or dysfunction. Orhf's activities are devoted to establishing continued opprtunities for the funding of outdoor recreation activities, including archery, trapshooting, fishing and hunting. The orhf's fundraising activities will support outdoor recreation programs that help people with physical disabilities lead fuller and healthier lives. Orhf has sponsored many fundraising events and programs to this end. Annually, they hold a pheasant hunt where servicemen and women, veterans and their families participate in hunting competitions. The events bolster their self-esteem and enrich their lives and the lives of their loved ones.
