Heroes on the Water
The mission of Fort Gordon Chapter Heroes on the Water is to help veterans, active-duty military, first-responders and wounded warriors relax, rehabilitate and reintegrate into society through kayak fishing and the outdoors. We have learned firsthand the ‘triple therapy’ of kayak fishing – physical with paddling and fishing, occupational in learning new skills and a sport they can do for life, and mental in the relaxation and freedom out on the water. Family members are encouraged to attend and participate. If you have family members wanting to fish, please let us know ahead of time. Attendance is by free registration only at www.eventbrite.com. Events are monthly and open up on Eventbrite 3 weeks prior. Next event will be Saturday, August 26, 2017. Future events are scheduled for September 16, October 14, and November 11. Volunteers and guides are also encouraged to register at Eventbrite. Showtime for volunteers and guides is at 0700. Showtime for participants is at 0800.
