Always a hero

Many of us familiar with Pennsylvania’s outdoor recreation industry know Eric Martin and his company, Wilderness Voyageur Outfitters of Ohiopyle.

What began as a typical June workday for Eric made him a “Hero”.

Hearing emergency vehicles converging on the river, Eric went to help rescue two women from high water on the Yough.  This December, Eric received the prestigious Carnegie Medal Hero award for his actions in 2017.

We are extremely proud to know and work with Eric.  He was the very first borrower of The Progress Fund, 21 years ago, and he continues to use us for his ever growing rafting and related business ventures.

Three cheers for Eric Martin and Patrick McCarthy who were the Heroes of the rescue!
