WATERVLIET, N.Y. -- Folks in Watervliet taste-test some chili to help raise money for a good cause.
The David Fisher Upper Hudson Heroes Organization hosted a chili cook-off fundraiser to give veterans with disabilities the chance to go kayaking. The organization was established last year in memory of David Fisher, a Watervliet resident who died in Iraq in 2004. The group's mission is to reinforce self-confidence for vets.
John Cameron, Retired U.S. Marine said, “"Physical disabilities, mental disabilities, spinal injuries and what happens is you feel like you can't do anything."
Victoria DiMura, David Fisher's mother said, “I'm really proud of my son's memory and I'm happy I can be a little part of this and help people like John. Because I do know firsthand because I worked for the military and for the National Guard after my son died. I know what it's like for these people to have the support."
Donations will help provide the necessary equipment for vets to be safe when they hit the water.
