A Kayaking and Paddle Boarding Fundraiser to Improve the Quality of Life of Our Veterans
September 17th, 2016
In 2015 we raised $3,937 through donations, registration fees, and sponsorships, benefiting Companions For Heroes a 501c that provides therapy dogs to Veterans. Our sincere thanks to everyone that participated and supported this event, in particular, our main sponsor Fairfield County Bank. This year we have already raised over $4,000, and hope to greatly increase that number as we get closer to the event!
We continue to support Companions For Heroes and have added Help Our Military Heroes, a 501(c)(3) organization that provides adaptive minivans for disabled Veterans (read more about this amazing local organization)
At Downunder we see on a regular basis the calming and healing power of the water, how it reduces stress, and relaxes people, and animals. We are huge supporters of getting people and dogs on the water. We even have our own store dog – Fin, a Bernese Mountain Dog!
Paddle Boarding and Kayaking can be great workouts or just something fun to do. Develop skill and confidence, and join us on Sept 17, recreationally or competitively!
