It all started when...
In 2007, a group of kayak anglers thought it might be a good idea to take children out for a day of kayak fishing. We contacted the Alpharetta Police Athletic League (PAL) and arranged for a field day with local children. It was a hit and became an annual event for several years.
Those experiences led to new and different opportunities.
We’ve paddled with Wounded Warriors from Ft. Gordon and Ft Benning. Through the Shepherd SHARE initiative, we’ve hosted events for service members suffering from PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injuries.
We partnered with Georgia Special Olympics to create the first every kayak racing events in Georgia.
We introduced our good friends at A.I.R.S (Athens Inclusive Recreation Sports) to kayaking for those with physical challenges.
And with our friends in Columbus, GA, we’ve supported the Midnight Express event raising money for the visually impaired by paddling with visually impaired beep ball players. That was a sight to see!
Since 2007, P4T has found ways to introduce kayaking and the healing powers of being outdoors to many different communities.
