Always serving

Our Story

Founded in 2016, Heroes on the River provides an outlet for combat veterans to experience the camaraderie and excitement of their military service through outdoor adventure programs.

The Shenandoah Valley provides a beautiful landscape for many of our adventures. We recognized a need for an outdoor veteran organization in the area, and it was important for us to run a veteran nonprofit where 100% of its profits fund our mission.

Our Mission

Heroes on the River aims to bring our combat veteran community together through recreational activities and social events. Our programs are designed with the purpose of getting veterans connected with one another through outdoor adventures in a safe and positive environment.
