Western Pennsylvania Heroes on the Water will hold a kayaking event Sept. 28 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the North Shore launch of Yellow Creek State Park off Route 422 east of Penn Run.
Heroes on the Water is a nonprofit organization serving all wounded service members. The group’s mission is to help wounded warriors relax, rehabilitate and reintegrate through outdoor activities.
Kayakers of all experience levels will be present to lend a helping hand. Kayaks, paddles, PFDs, and fishing gear will be available if you don’t have your own or you are welcome to bring and use your own equipment.
All participants must have a current Pennsylvania fishing license. A free lunch will be provided.
If you have any questions or are interested in participating, contact Josh Edmiston by Sept. 25 to ensure a kayak will be available, at (814) 243-4413 or by email at westernpa@heroesonthe water.org.
