FOX21 and the Colorado Springs Independent are teaming up once again for this year’s Give campaign.
We are highlighting local organizations that need your help, including the non-profit Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing.
For Korean War Veteran Len Stawasz, a participant of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, it has allowed him to do things he never thought he would.
“And being disabled I was able to get a camp chair, they would set me up a camp chair by a lake and I’d do my casting from my chair,” said Len Stawasz, a Korean War Veteran and a participant of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing.
Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing continues to grow in popularity since it started in 2005.
“As a nation, we owe these men and women that have put their lives on the line for our freedom; we owe them our gratitude, our responsibility and this is our chance to give back to them,” said Andy Koloski, with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing in Colorado Springs.
Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing keeps all their services free to disabled veterans saying the Non-profit wouldn’t be possible without all of the helpful donations that have kept them going.
Organizers said they also rely on volunteers to keep their services going and say anyone is welcome to help out. They need volunteers for cooking, driving and photography, so even if you don’t fly fish you can volunteer.
