Farewell to Summer: Families, Veterans Celebrate with Wounded Warrior Project

By Wounded Warrior Project, Special for  USDR

Before the hustle and bustle of a new school year, many families like to get out in the sun and enjoy one last bit of summer fun. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) recently helped a large group say goodbye to the carefree season in style with an end-of-summer celebration at The Getaway in St.  Petersburg.

More than 100 injured veterans and family members took part in the celebration, which included water activities and a make-your-own taco bar. WWP teamed up with Urban Kai to provide paddleboarding and kayaking to willing  participants.
