Throw Back Thursday. V28.  Werner’s Healthy Waters Initiative.

Throw Back Thursday, Volume 28 takes a look at Werner Paddle's giving back to the support the people who protect the places we paddle.  #TBT to 2008 and the introduction of our Healthy Waters Initiative.  Over the years we receive so many donation requests and because many were worthy, it makes it a real challenge to say no to one and not another.  For decades, behind the scenes, we supported key agencies that helped paddlers enjoy new waterways and retain access to the classic spots in a world of ever expanding development.  But we realized that may not have been evident.  So considering both these points, we decided to showcase our non-for profit enviornmental partners, and strategically add some new ones to round out our support.  So officially started in 2008, Healthy Waters focuses our charitable giving for the good of paddlers.   Follow the link HERE to learn more about who the agencies are that we work with and about their missions.  We hope you will share in our pride in giving back to the community we have been a part of, alongside you, for 50 years.

 

Special thanks to all of the staff and volunteers working at our Healthy Water's partners.
