Sponsorship will enable Veterans to participate in Recreational Therapy Programs
EAGEN, Minnesota, May 17, 2022 — Rivers of Recovery (RoR) is pleased to announce that Stryten Energy LLC (www.stryten.com) has provided another generous financial donation to support wounded U.S. combat veterans participating in Rivers of Recovery programs. The donation will directly support combat veterans suffering with post-traumatic stress, mild traumatic brain injury, and other psychological wounds of war by allowing them to go through RoR’s unique rehabilitation program at no cost to them.
“We recognize the struggles many soldiers have returning home from combat. Rivers of Recovery is changing lives for the better, by providing these brave men and women with the mental and physical treatment they need to reconnect with their families, their communities and themselves as civilians. Stryten is honored to be part of that mission,” said Tim Vargo, Chief Executive Officer of Stryten Energy.
As a part of the sponsorship, veteran employees from Stryten Energy will have the opportunity to participate in several fly fishing trips alongside Rivers of Recovery guides. These trips provide combat veterans with an experiential rehabilitation program that focuses on outdoor recreational therapy activities along with other self-treatment techniques.
Additionally, Stryten is also the platinum sponsor for RoR’s Stars and Stripes charity fishing tournament to be held June 6-7 in Newburg, MD. Hosted by Mid River Guide Service, teams will compete for awards for largest fish, most fish and team spirit. The event will also feature cooking by Scott Leysath, host of Outdoor Channel’s Dead Meat TV. All proceeds from the tournament will help Rivers of Recovery in providing additional therapeutic excursions for our nation’s wounded warriors.
“We are grateful for Stryten’s ongoing support, which has made an immediate impact on combat veterans participating in our organization,” said Amy V. Simon, Executive Director of Rivers of Recovery. “As May is National Military Appreciation Month, we really appreciate their efforts to honor both active and former members of our armed forces.”
Rivers of Recovery is an innovative, national nonprofit that uses outdoor-based activities to effectively treat symptoms of post-traumatic stress, depression, and anxiety in combat veterans and active-duty military. The organization has achieved national media attention for its unique programs and results-driven treatments, which combine fly fishing and other outdoor activities with a scientifically designed curriculum of therapeutic techniques.
