A significant reason why Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing – Colorado Springs is successful and growing to meet an ever-increasing demand, year after year, is because we receive generous and consistent support from individuals, foundations and trusts, local businesses and organizations. We have seen a 600% growth in the number of veterans we serve in the Pikes Peak region and Southern Colorado, conducting a variety of classes and fishing outings in service of our mission. Support, whether it means becoming a sponsor, hosting an event, or donating directly, comes with many rewards.
First and foremost, you can be satisfied that you are lending your support to a worthy cause. PHWFF – COS seeks to serve a population of well over 41,000 disabled veterans who meet the Project Healing Waters eligibility criteria in Southern Colorado. PHWFF – Colorado Springs works hard to assist disabled veterans as they recover and overcome physical and emotional injuries. Support means becoming an integral and critical part of that process and improving the wellbeing of local communities by raising awareness of veteran-related issues.
“We have been fortunate to witness first hand just how therapeutic fly fishing can be for veterans, via settings that promote mindfulness in some of the most beautiful venues imaginable. We continue to be benefactors of the friendships that have resulted from our support of local programs and we are extremely appreciative of the recognition Cutthroat Anglers has received for supporting our military personnel. Simply irreplaceable.”
While we receive invaluable support (liability coverage, training, technical and administrative support) from Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc., we must raise almost all of our annual budget with your support. Our sponsors annually donate funds, or goods/services which can be liquidated, for direct use in paying program expenses. Our program supporters annually donate goods or services which assist the program in providing services to our participants. Finally, our partners share a common goal or interest with PHWFF-COS and assist the program in providing services to our participants, increasing awareness of the program, or any other number of supporting efforts.

At Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen, we’ve been graciously serving made-from-scratch goodness since 1979. Our founders, Aubrey Good and Doug Rogers, believed that when a meal is prepared and cooked fresh just for you, it not only tastes better, it makes you feel good. We use quality ingredients and take the time to prepare them in our kitchen. It’s the right way, not the easy way, because it tastes better that way.

I graduated with honors from the Boulder College of Massage Therapy in 2006. Over the years, I have learned that the root of the problem is rarely the one spot where we feel pain. It’s never just one spot. In my experience, standard deep tissue massage is at times not enough to create sufficient relief. I take a whole body approach integrating a variety of hands-on styles of bodywork for lasting relief.
