Ocean Sports Program 

The PTSD Health & Research Center contributed three additional stand-up paddleboards to add to the Hilo Veterans Center's one stand-up paddleboard so that Veterans can enjoy ocean sports activities with each other and with their families. This program has become a popular method of outreach for new veterans. The Ocean Sports program now travels to a variety of locations throughout the East side of the Big Island to draw out the more isolated Veterans.

Testimonials

The paddleboards are used by Veterans and their families all the time. They have been a gateway for getting Veterans out of their homes to interact with their families and the community.
