A local nonprofit is on a mission to take disabled veterans and kids with life threatening conditions into the outdoors.
However.. they're struggling to find people that need their help.
"We are searching for children and its tough" says Kathy Billington.
When Kathy and her husband Mark started the Wisconsin chapter of The Outdoor Adventure Foundation in January they never guessed they would have a hard time finding recipients of their good will.
"We have gone to the VA clinics, gone to Children's Hospital sent a lot of information out to a lot of people" explains Billington.
Finding donors was the easy part.
"I cried like a little girl" says donor Doug Kostreva. "I am so fortunate, you read some of these stories about all these kids want to do is go hunting. They shoot and elk and that's their graduation picture because they passed away"
Kostreva owns of Horny Buck Seed Company and got involved with Outdoor Adventure after meeting Kathy at a hunting show.
"Now I got some guys that are bear hunters have dogs willing to help and it is kind of like a big family all willing to help. I think it's just a great thing" he says.
The nonprofit network started in North Dakota to help teens like Natalie Hill.
"She is 16 years old and she has stage 4 lung cancer" explains Billington.
Natalie got the chance to hunt in Texas.
"They can go anywhere they want to go. They can go to Alaska fishing, if they want to go elk hunting they go elk hunting" she says.
Now volunteers are on a mission to match deserving kids and veterans with a trip of a lifetime at no cost.
"We just have to give back" says Billington. "Some of these parents and kids families are so devastated by medical bills a lot of these kids all they want to do is go out and be in the outdoors and go hunting, or fishing or camping. We are kind of in the business of making dreams come true for these children and these vets".
To continue the mission there is a big golf outing coming up..
It is Saturday, July 14th at Black Bear Trail Golf Course in Suring.
If you're not a golfer you can just come for dinner for $15.
