BENEFITING: HEROES ON THE WATER

Casey Gilbert

THE STORY:

Hi and thanks for stopping by to learn more about my cause, HOW. Their mission is one that runs close to my heart and soul. I will be kayaking from Grandy, NC to Virginia Beach, VA in late August, early September, depending on the weather. Its a little under 40 nautical miles and it will take me 2 days to complete. I am asking for your support as I under take this challenge. Every $1000 raised buys HOW a new kayak to be used for disabled veterans to learn the great benefits of kayak fishing.

You see, my faher is a disabled veteran. He was drafted during the Vietnam War. Unfortunately, when he came home, the horrible affects of war were already at work in his body, both physically and mentally. I have watched him during my life as he has fought his own war to stay independent. My father is my hero because of the honor in which he represented this country...and even though he would have cause, I have never heard him curse his service.

Since I started kayaking, my father has often commented that he would love to try it but due to his disability, he is afraid. With your help, a kayak will be bought in his honor. Nothing would make him happier than to know there is a disabled war hero, somewhere on the water, paddling and learning to relax, in a kayak with his name on it.

Please help me support this wonderful organization that gives disabled war heroes a bit of freedom...after all, they gave us ours. All donations are 100% tax deductable and you will receive a receipt by email. Thank you considering my cause and thank a vet today.
