Founder Chad Brown and participants talk about Soul River Runs Wild, and its programs to promote healing and conservation

 

Soul River Runs Wild is a non-profit that teams inner city youth and US military veterans, introduces them to the joys of fishing and camping, provides outdoor educational experiences, and fosters healing and connection.  Founder Chad Brown is a veteran who was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in 2010. The discovery of fly fishing helped him to heal and turn his life around, and the creation of Soul River Runs Wild has been a way for him to live by his motto: “Radiate your pain outward to help others;” and to inspire a new generation of outdoor ambassadors to advocate for Mother Nature and conservation. Host Stephanie Potter will be joined Chad Brown, and teen participant Tyrell Coxeff with his mother Nneka Coxeff.
