Sail 4 Hope - Kids
sails 4 hope - kids
sails 4 hope and (sails 4 hope - kids) is an outreach initiative of PTSD Resurrected Inc.
Established in 2017, PTSD Resurrected aims to restore Hope, Healing and Purpose to individuals suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder as a result of trauma experienced through their service.
In 2017, 84 veterans committed suicide - averaging a lost life every 4 days! This number does not include serving members, other First Responders, our Policemen & Women, Ambulance Officers and our Fire Fighters.
'sails 4 hope' and 'sails 4 hope - kids' utilises sailing as an activity, to give purpose to not only individuals but also to families, helping them to reconnect in a positive and non-confrontational recreational activity.
This Go Fund Me Fund raising project, aims to raise AUD$15,000.00 to purchase a small fleet of six (6) Hansa Access Sail-ability Dinghies and associated safety equipment, for the sails 4 hope - kids program.
Both the sails 4 hope programs provided at no cost to veterans and their families, and is able to be accessed by the general public for a small nominal fee. These outreach programs acknowledge that PTSD effects not only our Military & First Responder Personnel, but also impacts on the larger community.
The program has a number of aims, to not only provide a recreational program, but also to be used as a platform to create awareness of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
