Topic: Hunting for Heroes
Hunting for Heroes is an organization that provides
recreational therapy and counseling for law enforcement officers severely injured in the line of duty. Founded
in 2010 by two active duty law enforcement officers, H4H reaches out to officers across the country
to connect them with other officers who have sustained life altering injuries. H4H provides a hunting camp
environment where officers and their families are able to step away from daily struggles and enjoy time outdoors.
According to Hunting for Heroes, “we allow officers
and their families the freedom to let their guard down and share difficult situations as we all contribute to help them overcome
the struggles they are facing both emotionally and physically. At our camps we connect disabled officers and their families
with other families in similar circumstances. They are able to create lifelong friendships and grow their
support network as they travel down the long road of recovery. They also gain strength and courage as they
share stories of personal struggles and perseverance as they discuss their recoveries and the daily challenges they face.
They learn to enjoy the outdoors and a variety of activities that they can perform while overcoming their disability.
We expose them to a whole new set of activities that they can perform while overcoming their disability.”
