Midwest Kayak Fishing Series is proud to raise money for Heroes on the Water, Eastern Nebraska Chapter.


Heroes on the Water serves our Nation’s wounded veterans by providing healing and rehabilitating kayak fishing outings that are physically and mentally therapeutic through our nationwide community of volunteers and donors.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with national headquarters based in Allen, Texas, Heroes on the Water is supported by tax deductible donations of funds, gear, kayaks, food, housing, transportation, guide services, and other necessities by generous individuals and corporations.

Started at Brooke Army Medical Center in 2007, Heroes on the Water serves wounded military personnel at U.S. Army Warrior Transition Battalions, the Marine Wounded Warrior Regiment, Air Force Wounded Warrior, and Navy Safe Harbor, as well as at VA medical and rehab facilities, and medically retired veterans in communities across the country.

Today, our unique kayak fishing program is provided to wounded veterans in 43 locations across 24 states at no cost to the veterans or their families. Our vast network of 1,100+ volunteers has provided over 6,100 vet days on the water since 2007.

For thousands of wounded warriors, kayak fishing has become a powerful and liberating source of rehabilitation. It shatters the perceived limits of their injuries and creates an openness to interact, learn new skills, and focus on the bright future ahead.

Our freedoms come at a big sacrifice. Together, we can help our wounded warriors gain the freedom they fought to protect.
