MarineMax Welcomes Wake for Warriors to Lake of The Ozarks
LAKE OZARK, MO (April 12, 2021) – MarineMax welcomes Wake for Warriors to Lake of the Ozarks July 21 – 25. As a fellow water enthusiast, please join in honoring and celebrating American Veterans.
Dale Law, MarineMax General Manager comments, "Our partnership with Wake for Warriors is significant to the entire team here at MarineMax. Not only do they help people connect with their water gene, but they also help the healing process for those who have served our country."
Wake for Warriors' mission is to connect with injured military veterans by sharing their passion for wake and water sports. The hope is to heal the emotional and psychological wounds of military veterans and their families. Wake for Warriors organizes over twenty nationwide events annually and provides them at no cost to the veterans. Did You Know?
- 30% of veterans have disabilities as a result of their service.
- 22% of veterans are diagnosed with a depressive order.
- Since 2002 more than 200,000 service members have suffered a traumatic brain injury.
- In the U.S., 22 veterans a day commit suicide. That's one veteran every 65-80 minutes.
- 40.7% feel like a guest in their own homes.
- 84% of veterans say that the American public has "little awareness" of the challenges facing them and their families.
Law continues, "In addition to providing a weekend full of fun and healing at Lake of the Ozarks, our goal is to raise $50,000 for Wake for Warriors, and we need your help. There are several giving opportunities available for those interested. We have raffle tickets, t-shirts, and flags for sale, and if you buy a boat, a portion of the sale will go toward the cause!"
