The group Wounded Warriors says it will hold a fishing tournament in Nipawin in late August to raise awareness of post-traumatic stress disorder and homelessness among veterans.
About 60 veterans are expected for the three-day event, which will run from Aug. 24 to 26.
The group's director, Blake Emmons, says the original idea started with him and his friends sitting around a campfire talking about freedom.
Now he says that instead of just a few Vietnam veterans involved, there are dozens of people taking part.
The Saskatchewan Union of Nurses are supporting the vets by donating $10,000 to the tournament.
