Kids Corner Enrichment to Debut at 2019 Sand-Water-RV Expo

Visitors to the 2019 Sand-Water-RV Expo will find a new attraction waiting for them and their children — “Kids Corner Enrichment” — a new, local 501c3 charity focusing on kids and two of Lake Havasu City’s most abundant resources — “water and sun”. Here’s what they are trying to accomplish.

Provide a safe and educational environment for kids and families to visit starting at local events and gatherings in Mohave County and the Colorado River area. Our focus will be on water and sun safety to empower smart choices for outdoor activities. Bring awareness to new experiences kids may have otherwise had limited access to in our community and awaken the family life in our area to the potential of adventure in our own backyard.

Kids and families will be able to experience activities such as fishing, hiking, bike riding, and animal/equestrian care. Interact with business for tours and shadow opportunity, BLM tours and education, Arizona Game and Fish presentations, Law Enforcement Awareness and general connections to how our community thrives. We have the potential to change kids lives with these experiences and it will depend on strong connections, ethical actions and the proper funding to furnish the desires.

Our initial launch will be with the backing of the Lake Havasu City Boat show from April 3-5, 2020 in Lake Havasu City, AZ. We will be hosting a Kids Corner Zone with organizers and volunteers promoting the launch of Kids Corner Enrichment as a 501c3. With our ability to provide a safe and educational area like never before, locals and guests will understand the direction our organization is headed.

Our vision is to promote awareness in public events for water and sun safety to keep our community on its toes about life jacket awareness, proper hydration, SunScreen importance, as well as looking out for others. We want to encourage quick action in a moment of emergency as well as law enforcement awareness. We live on one of the deadliest bodies of water in the united states, lets educate our youth on making smart decision as well as helping others in needs.

OVER COMING ADVERSITY THROUGH ACTIVITY and DETERMINATION

Paralyzed Veterans of America Is on a Mission – Partnering with the 8th Annual Sand-Water-RV Expo, Lake Havasu, November 16-17

The 8th Annual Sand-Water-RV Expo in Lake Havasu is proud to announce our 2019 charity partnership with Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA). This is the second consecutive year that the Sand-Water-RV Expo, the premier motorsports and outdoor recreation show in the southwest, has designated PVA as its official charity.

 

Over 100,000 U.S. military vets from all branches of the service with debilitating spinal cord injuries and amputations still crave active outdoor recreation just as much as the rest of us. And thanks to recent developments like custom off-road handcycles, and some that are even electrically assisted, that dream is now reality.

To once again be able to experience what it’s like to be outdoors and fully engaged in a physical sport is essential in preventing people with disabilities from surrendering themselves to a lifetime of confinement. Taking a custom off-road handcycle out on-trail is just one of the many programs organized, promoted and sponsored by PVA. 

Chartered by the United States Congress, PVA was formed in 1946 as a Veterans Service Organization and is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation. Today, there are 34 PVA chapters across America. Membership is free and open to those who have served in a branch of the U.S military and have suffered a spinal cord injury or dysfunction. PVA works on many levels to help these vets, coordinating employment opportunities, psychological and physical rehabilitation, finding appropriate housing and governmental and legislative advocacy.

The Sand-Water-RV Expo is committed to this effort. It will be donating a portion of the total 2019 ticket revenue and all proceeds from a raffle to this organization. And when attending the Expo, you’ll have an opportunity to meet some of these courageous veterans in person.
