Sponsorship will enable veterans to participate in recreational therapy programs
EAGAN, Minnesota, May 24, 2023 — 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.
“Stryten Energy is honored to support Rivers of Recovery in its mission to provide combat veterans the therapeutic benefits of time spent in nature combined with recreational therapy,” said Mike Judd, Chief Executive Officer and President of Stryten Energy. “Soldiers often face many physical and psychological issues when returning to civilian life. The programs provided by Rivers of Recovery are making a tremendous impact in the recovery of these veterans.”
As a part of the sponsorship, military veteran employees from Stryten Energy will have the opportunity to participate in several fly-fishing trips alongside Rivers of Recovery guides and other veterans. 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 the platinum sponsor for RoR’s Stars and Stripes charity fishing tournament to be held June 15-16 in Newburg, MD. Hosted by Mid River Guide Service, teams will compete for awards for the largest fish, the most fish and team spirit. All proceeds from the tournament will help Rivers of Recovery in providing additional therapeutic excursions for our nation’s wounded warriors.
“Stryten’s support continues to help combat veterans in our program recover from their war-related injuries, making a difference in their lives and for their families,” said Amy V. Simon, Executive Director of Rivers of Recovery. “As May is National Military Appreciation Month, we particularly appreciate Stryten’s commitment to acknowledging the contributions of both current 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.
