THE STORY:

I have been given a gift – a chance to overcome the fears I had for competitive sport and the support to redefine my capabilities both physical and spiritual. Let us together prove that our place in the community isn’t dependent on physical capability but on having the opportunity to define our passion to benefit those around us. Let’s help Nepal’s resilient people adapt to a new kind of hero.

Always the curious one, my adventure resume consisted of serving in the Army for five years in Military Intelligence, earning a BA in Psychology and later exploring Computer Science and Graphic Design, eventually dawning the helmet and leathers of a motorcyclist. The only thing that scared me was Sports and Math. After my motorcycle accident in 2014, I was still curious and adventurous. Thanks to veteran non-profits I am a paratriathlete and able to surf, scuba dive, cycle, run, water ski, skeleton sled and tons more than I ever would have imagined – even before the loss of my leg.

Opportunity and peer examples are what helped to achieve my goals and key to remaining a contributing citizen while physically challenged. I have been offered the chance participate in some highly active events like Triathlons surrounded by other people with the same injuries – who have pushed to adapt to the activity they love. I stand on the shoulders of those before me. It’s my turn to share and offer a shoulder to the people of Nepal.

And I’ll take on Math another day.

Our passionate group believes that Nepal's incredible beauty, rich culture, and fascinating people should be accessible to all. We believe that our veterans with physical challenges, athletes whose careers have been changed by traumatic injury, and men and women from all walks of life with disabilities should have the chance to visit Nepal. We know that although their injuries impose constraints and create challenges, those constraints can be overcome and the challenges surmounted.

So, The Soarway Foundation, in partnership with the International Development Institute and other caring partners like Operation Namaste will support a Wounded Heroes trek for all these heroes who face life’s challenges with courage and determination.  This trek will not only be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the participants, but it will also help us to shift attitudes in Nepal where currently a half million Nepalis with disabilities face a profoundly difficult future.

Support them.   Give our Wounded Heroes this experience!  Help us make the Wounded Heroes trek a reality.  The Soarway Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity and your contribution will not only support an incredible cause but it is also tax deductible.

Donate today!  Empower Nepal.
