Organizing Efforts, Creating Change, Making an Impact
How It Feels
Picture a child with cancer smiling for the first time since diagnosis or a veteran with PTSD relaxing and enjoying the camaraderie of fellow veterans and loving civilians. They leave their worries on the dock as they head out on local waters for a few hours of relaxation and sunshine.
That’s what happens during our free marine-related programs. People are transported away from their challenges and cares. They smile. They laugh. They make lifelong memories and new friendships, building a greater sense of community.
