Woodbridge, VA (PRWEB) August 18, 2014
Belvoir Federal Credit Union supported Heroes on the Water (HOW), an organization that serves the Nation’s warriors by providing healing and rehabilitating water outings that are physically and mentally therapeutic.
The HOWs organization is a non-profit that works with the men and women in Fort Belvoir, VA. Belvoir Federal Credit Union supported the event with volunteers and bottled water. The excursion allowed supporters and volunteers to kayak with wounded warriors on the Potomac River.
“I was pleased to represent the credit union and offer support to the men and women who make our way of life here possible. It was an honor to spend quality time together on the healing waters of the Potomac,” stated Sharon Leake, Installation Liaison and Membership Development Officer at Belvoir Federal.
Karl Schwartz, George Washington Chapter Heroes on the Water, stated, “I want to thank each of you who came out to participate and volunteer for our event. It was a great first effort and we will only get better from here. It would not have happened and our future events will not happen without help from you.”
Heroes on the Water has a mission to create a calm, safe, comfortable, and peaceful opportunity for warriors and their families/caregivers to relieve stress, while providing physical and occupational therapy. For more information on HOWs, visit http://www.heroesonthewater.org.
