How It All Started
By Phil and Julie Taub, Co-Founders
As we continue to evolve and understand more about the needs of our Veterans, we are focusing more on providing service and support dogs to Veterans and creating art programs, both of which address the invisible wounds that too many of our veterans are suffering through. This year we are kicking off our art fundraising efforts by bringing Portraits of Courage to New Hampshire, a unique collection of paintings of Veterans by President Bush. We are also focusing on publishing a book about Veterans in NH as well as working with local artist Chris Ward to raise money to support art therapy programs.
We are so grateful that our first five years have been such a great success and are exceedingly appreciative of every donor, sponsor, swimmer, volunteer and participant who have helped make this mission victorious! We have an incredible board, group of advisors and swim committee that are working hard to make year six even better. We are grateful to our friends and family (especially to our children Benjamin and Dani) for joining our mission. Please join us to make a difference!
