About Us

Our Non-Profit VA Vigilante PaddleFit Challenge was founded to help raise money for homeless and disabled veterans in North Carolina. All proceeds from this event will go directly to agencies supporting homeless and disabled veterans in North Carolina.  The VA Vigilante PaddleFit Challenge is a fun and exciting way to show your support for the local veterans in need. They served for us now it’s our turn to give back to them.
