Cruise FAQ

Learn about the wonderful organizations this event is supporting.

Freeze Bullying for Payton (Payton’s Project):

Bullying/Cyberbullying affects 1 out of every 4 students. Payton's Project is a 501c3 non-profit,100% volunteer organization. It was formed in February of 2016 after Payton Rose Freeze took her own life due to being bullied at school, exacerbated by traumatic brain injury caused by a concussion.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, Payton's Project is able to educate our community on the devastating effects of bullying/cyberbullying, offer scholarships to students who have either demonstrated efforts to combat bullying/cyberbullying in their community, or have been a victim of bullying and persevered, and offer hope and support to students who are being

bullied through our Payton's Peers Program. In Payton's Peers, aged defined groups from elementary school through college, are able to share thoughts and emotions in a small group forum that focuses on student-led strength and sustenance on a weekly basis. Each session is led by a trained mentor and encourages an opportunity for members to share past or current experiences with bullying behavior in a supportive, non-judgmental environment while building resiliency and learning coping mechanisms.

Payton’s Peers is a FREE program. It has been said that it takes a village to raise a child. Payton's Project also believes it takes a village to save one.

Patriot Cruise and Salute:

Patriot Cruise and Salute is a non-profit charitable organization formed to organize free recreational boating events to benefit wounded, injured, and ill veterans of the United States Armed Forces.


The vision of Patriot Cruise and Salute is anywhere there are boaters and wounded warriors a Patriot Cruise event can be hosted. We hope to expand to other locations across the country to support more veterans and wounded warriors.


Founded by two retired military officers, Patriot Cruise and Salute provides recuperating veterans and their families a day of boating and camaraderie on the Potomac River, recognizing that healing veterans and their families at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital are often separated from their homes, extended families and their friends. Each year the community comes together to say “Thank You” to these wounded veterans and their families, by providing a much-needed mental respite from their medical concerns.

Gainesville-Haymarket Rotary Foundation Inc.

The Foundation is a non-profit corporation that works locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide high school scholarships, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto "Service Above Self."

Washington Area Animal Adoption Group:

Washington Area Animal Adoption Group (WAAAG) is a Veteran founded, 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of Delaplane, VA. We help all types of dogs and cats to find safe and loving homes. We are a small rescue, which allows us to focus on the quality of life for all our animals.
