Owned by TEN: The Enthusiast Network, CANOE & KAYAK took home the win for Best Single Article at the 2017 Folio: Show’s Eddie & Ozzie Awards / Outdoor/Sports for its Healing Waters feature. The article focused on military veterans returning from war and finding compassion and camaraderie on the water on their path to healing.

“Bringing in a filmer/director who was a paddler (as well as a combat veteran suffering from PTSD) added a layer of access and credibility where subjects really opened up,” said Dave Shively, content director, paddlesports at TEN: Adventure Sports Group. “This snowballed into a broader, more humbling, complex and rewarding story project than I’ve ever worked on, and I think the judges responded to that.”

The story was also sponsored by NRS. “We’re honored that we could help Canoe & Kayak bring this incredible story to life,” says NRS marketing director Mark Deming. “Healing Waters provides an intimate view of the challenges facing our veterans today, but leaves us with the hope that these challenges can be met. It’s a remarkable reminder of the restorative powers of paddling.”

“There’s now a generation of soldiers to whom this country owes an enormous debt, and adventure sports often play a crucial role in helping these men and women readjust to civilian life,” says Micah Abrams, TEN’s group content director. “Dave Shively and the Canoe & Kayak crew did an exceptional job shining a spotlight on this dynamic in a way that will hopefully inspire others to better understand how we can all contribute to easing the transition for our friends and family in the military. We’re thrilled to see them recognized in a forum as prestigious as the FOLIO awards.”
