Paddle, Inspire, Empower

Live Water Co. DBA Live Water Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization.


Our Story

Established in 2017, Live Water Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Annapolis, MD, was formed to expand on the signature community give-back programs of the team at Capital SUP.

Live Water Foundation currently supports three initiatives within the Veteran community, underprivileged and disabled youth, and promoting clean waterways. Our programs include the #LiveLikeCody Wai Koa Program, an adaptive paddling program for physically and mentally disabled Veterans; the Junior Wai Koa Program, which inspires underprivileged and disabled youth to become future leaders through a watersports mentorship program; and numerous clean water initiative programs. In addition to programmatic support, Live Water Foundation team aspires to create “Positive Vibes” within the Veteran community, inspire underprivileged and disabled youth to become future leaders, to be champions in the enhancement of the waterways in which we paddle, and to inspire a lifestyle of health and wellness through watersports activities.

The crew at Live Water Foundation is incredible. During the summer months of my recovery at Walter Reed, I looked forward to this every week! Paddleboarding is definitely a new passion for me thanks to the incredible experience with Live Water. Thank you for everything you great folks do!
