Mission Statement

The goal of the IRISHWATERDOGS WARRIORS Program is to take our injured Veterans, First Responders and their families away from the stresses of everyday life and provide healing and therapy through nature and the outdoors.

Description

The IRISHWATERDOGS WARRIORS Program is a monthly outing hosted by IRISHWATERDOGS to help heal our injured veterans and honor our Nation’s Heroes.

Through the healing power of kayaking, kayak fishing and the outdoors, our goal is to bring calm and peace to our service personnel, and with your support, we can.

On the first Sunday of each month at various locations throughout the country, IRISHWATERDOGS organizes kayaking, fishing and outdoors programs to take injured Veterans and their families away from the stresses of everyday life as well a provide a break from their Hospitals and Clinics.

We work very closely with the VA to make sure all our Veterans get the best care and therapy possible and as a mark of that, the VA will regularly bring 2 to 3 busses of Veterans to our events.

Most of our Veterans have suffered terrible injuries, both physical and mental, and our program helps to heal our Heroes by keeping them physically active and immersing them in the healing power of water and nature.

On arrival, our Veterans are provided a hot breakfast to start their day. We then set them up with all they will need for whatever activity they would like to participate in. We provide their kayaks, safety equipment, maps and assign them to one of our Volunteer guides. For those wishing to kayak fish, we provide their rods, reels and bait. Our Veterans are asked to provide or bring nothing, just themselves and their families. There is no cost ever to any of our Heroes. These costs are covered by us at IRISHWATERDOGS and our amazing partners.

IRISHWATERDOGS has also sponsored a law to make Veterans exempt from fishing licenses. We have had it moved from committee stage and are currently waiting on House and Senate scheduling, where we have been invited to bring it to the floor of the Florida legislature, where all involved believe it will pass.
