The grant will support the annual walleye fishing event in which firefighters from around the state of South Dakota provide their personal boats and manpower to take veterans with spinal cord injuries and other conditions that cause paralysis and mobility impairment on a 2-day fishing event in Chamberlain, South Dakota on the Missouri River. Each boat has a firefighter boat captain and co-captain, along with one or two angler(s) that use wheelchairs. Grant funds will support programmatic expenses. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000838-01).
