California State Parks Division of Boating and Waterways Awards Grant to Healing Waters for 2018


We Did It!

Thank you, California Division of Boating and Waterways for approving our grant request for funding this year!

In 2017 we took over 360 participants safely down the South Fork of the American River meeting the department's goals of teaching safe boating practices and procedures.

In their approval letter the agency wrote: "Successful applicants also demonstrated a positive boating safety record; have an adequately trained staff and a safe environment in which to teach."

Healing Waters is very proud of our safety standards and especially of our dedicated volunteers who ensure every week that participants experience the excitement of whitewater rafting prepared and protected.

AIDS Walk San Francisco

AIDS Walk San Francisco is a 10k fundraising walk and run in Golden Gate Park on July 15, 2018. This event benefits ACRIA, Project Open Hand, Positive Resource Center and Bay Area AIDS service organizations, including Healing Waters.

Join our AIDS Walk team either as a day-of-event Walker, or as a Virtual one and support the organization. We can’t do it without you! 

The Healing Waters team check-in table will be located in Sharon Meadow in Golden Gate Park where AIDS Walk begins, meeting at 8:30am. All team tables are alphabetized in each section. 

See you at the Park!
