Every day 22 Veterans take their lives. That’s a staggering statistic. That’s 8,000 a year… one every 65 minutes. After proudly serving our country many of them have returned with disabilities ranging from PTSD, traumatic brain injury, spinal injuries and loss of limbs. They are our quiet warriors, struggling in silence against pain, a sense of loneliness and a feeling they don’t belong.
Dive Warriors is dedicated to empowering these brave men and women on their road to recovery through the therapeutic qualities of scuba diving. We offer an environment of personal growth, comradery and a social setting where they can interact with other disabled veterans with similar issues. Through scuba diving, they overcome challenges and get relief from stress and the pain they deal with on a daily basis.
At Dive Warriors, our programs are designed to help improve lives of our wounded service members. We are a non-profit charity dedicated to helping disabled veterans by offering training and diving excursions in the challenging sport of scuba diving, an activity which has proven to help with the rehabilitation process. It instills a sense of confidence and helps many with controlling their stress. The water creates a weightless environment for those struggling with physical impairments and offers them a freedom they can’t find on land.
Dive Warriors goes beyond providing the skills to become certified divers. We also fund trips to take our veterans to locations where they can actually dive. These interactions provide a network that builds morale while creating social connections with others who understand the difficulties they face everyday. A lot of service-members live on fixed incomes and this is a chance for them to step outside their daily routine, and form new and lasting friendships while improving their lives.
But none of this is possible without your help. Dive Warriors operates solely from donations and the generous support of people like you.
So please help give back to those who have given so much for us by making a tax-deductible donation today.
