Short Film About Duo’s 100 Mile Paddle for PTSD

Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) claims the lives of 22 military veterans each day, while many more suffer from the depression, anxiety and other debilitating conditions. Nate Dub, a former US Army soldier, struggled with PTSD before discovering the therapeutic effects of standup paddling. Since then, he has decided to use the sport as a platform to increase awareness for those still struggling with this disorder.

Together with Midwest distance pioneer Shane Perrin, Dub paddled 100 miles from Chicago to Horny Goat, Milwaukee. By doing so, they raised $7,000 for Nate's nonprofit–Proudly We Stand–that supports Nation of Patriots and Companions for Heroes. The duo recently released this new documentary, focusing on their epic journey and continued efforts to stand up for those facing PTSD.
