About The Foundation


On July 4, 2018 my wife and I, along with some good friends got together and went on a little kayak float to enjoy the day as well as our freedoms. Jokingly, I called it the Freedom Float being that it was on Independence Day. That being said, I thought what a great way to start an organization and hold an annual event to benefit our Nations finest...The Vets!


The Freedom Float Foundation was then born. 


It is designed to assist and aid local West Virginia Veterans and Veteran affiliations through donations. Throughout the year we will be conducting fundraisers, having raffles and much more that will all lead up to the main event....THE FREEDOM FLOAT! EVERY penny that is raised will go to the foundation's account.

The Freedom Float Foundation is a nonprofit organization created by Veterans in order to assist local Veterans and affiliations.


We are set to launch our annual Freedom Float on July 4, 2020 at 8 AM. New route this year! Details coming soon!


Shuttle buses will be available.



Preregistration runs from April 1, 2020 until June 2, 2020 and will include your name for various free raffles and a t-shirt. Cost for preregistration is $15 per Veteran and $20 per Non-Veteran.



Cost after June 2, 2020 will be $20 per Veteran and $25 per Non-Veteran.



A separate raffle for a Kayak is underway. You can purchase tickets until the day of raffle at many area businesses throughout the Kanawha Valley or by contacting our foundation by messaging through Facebook. We look forward to seeing you out there on the magnificent Coal River in support of our local Veterans! Donations are welcome!
