We will also have other jumpers helping Project Healing Waters put on this event and make is the success, it needs to be. We as skydivers know the hardships our Military Personnel and Veterans go through and we are committed t do all we can to help.

For some, fly fishing is more than a hobby. It’ a way to heal. At Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing they teach fly fishing and fly tying skills to disabled active duty personnel and veterans, bringing them closer to physical and emotional recovery. Help us, help them to share the power of the water with those who need it most. Come on out and support the local chapter!
