Each year we are amazed at the number of videos that beautifully highlight stories born from our unique kind of therapy and the work being done by our volunteers across the country. This past year was no different and we are honored to share just a few of our favorites from 2018 with you below.
As we enter the new year, we want to thank you for supporting Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing. Thanks to our dedicated cadre of volunteers and supporters over 8,500 disabled veterans were served by our exceptional fly fishing programs in 2018 alone! On behalf of those disabled veteran participants, thank you for helping us provide each of them with the support they need on their journey towards physical and emotional recovery.
But our work continues in 2019! With over 3.8 million disabled veterans nationwide your support remains essential to our continued success. Together we can meet our goal of expanding our program services to an additional 1,200 injured and disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans nationwide in 2019. As we reflect on all that we have done in 2018, we are reminded that none of what we accomplished could have been done without you.
