“Participating in Rivers of Recovery was a revolutionary experience. It showed me that I didn’t have to sit in a wheelchair and play video games for the rest of my life. Outdoor activities are now my life, and I take great pride in my role as Director of Guiding Operations at Rivers of Recovery. I can now provide a life-changing therapeutic experience to wounded warriors, just as it was given to me.”
- Justin Clenard, Purple Heart recipient, served two tours in Iraq and one tour in Afghanistan which resulted in double leg amputation, torso and left arm damage, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) sustained from IED attack
This is just one of thousands of stories shared by our Veterans and Active Duty Military that participate in Rivers of Recovery's innovative rehabilitation programs. At Rivers of Recovery we believe that our Veterans and Military should not be left to a life of pain, mental anguish and disability after putting their lives on the line for others. Our program offers a chance for Veterans to reconnect with nature, fellow Veterans and themselves. Through yoga, fly fishing, outdoor activities and talk therapy our program has been scientifically proven to decrease PTSD symptoms, perceptual stress, anxiety and depression immediately after the program and continued relief six-months following the program.
Your donation directly effects how many Veterans will on our trips in the 2016 fishing season. Participants are able to experience our innovative programs free of costs, however, lodging, meals, transportation, fishing equipment and guides averages $2,000 per participant which is only possible with individual and corporate donations and sponsorships. Donations received this year will allow Rivers of Recovery to plan trips for the 2016 season. We are anticipating the start of a new program in Minnesota which will give opportunity for more Veterans in our state to participate in our life-changing program.
