#GIVINGTUESDAY: THE LIVE WATER FOUNDATION
If you have visited Facebook today, you most likely have seen this hashtag spread like wildfire. #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement built by individuals and communities in the US and around the world. From the day Capital SUP opened its doors for business in the Summer of 2014, social responsibility and giving back to our community has been at the forefront. There was an instant impact we made on people’s lives and decided in the Winter of 2016 we wanted to do more!
The Live Water Foundation was formed to continue growing our give back initiatives and provide us more access to do better! Our Mission, to lead the advocacy of water sports activity that will better the well-being of our communities. How? By paddling, inspiring, and empowering the people and organizations we work with! Who are our beneficiaries? The Live Water team aspires to create “Positive Vibes” within the Veteran community, inspire underprivileged and disabled youth to become future leaders, and for us to be Champions in the enhancement of the waterways in which we paddle on.
Wai Koa Performance Program- An adaptive water sports training program for physically and mentally disabled Veterans.
Team RWB Group Paddles & Workouts- A monthly event that brings together the local Veteran community as well as their family & friends to paddle, bond with each other, and to connect with the water.
