We are raising money for No Barriers: Challenge Minneapolis. It's a fun-filled day of inspiration and challenge at Fort Snelling Base Camp that includes indoor and outdoor rock climbing, archery, ropes courses and a series of team building exercises. Teams are participating alongside wounded warriors who will share stories of incredible resilience! All proceeds from this event support NO BARRIERS USA's programs for wounded veterans and survivors of the fallen. THE CRISIS More than 5.5 million of the 21.9 million veterans in the US are coping with a service-related disability. Due to the improvements in battlefield medical treatment, they return alive, yet not whole. Service members are trained to depend on each other. Upon separation from the military, many veterans feel disconnected and alone, experiencing a significant and immediate loss in the lack of camaraderie and interdependence as they return to the civilian world and their communities. OUR SOLUTION Our programs permanently impact lives by helping disabled members of all military branches tackle personal challenges. Mountains serve as both metaphor and training ground for stretching goals, building world-class teams, innovating through adversity and stepping up to lead and serve others. Our program integrates with the rehab process and helps soldiers restructure how they approach their past and future. Through the No Barriers Warriors experience, we provide veterans with camaraderie and support systems they can depend on. Tim and I are very blessed to have our health. We will be spending the day working alongside our country's protectors as they overcome physical obstacles.
