BENEFITING: The Heroes Project

EVENT DATE: Mar 01, 2014

THE STORY:

On January 20, 2011, while conducting an IED sweep in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, USMC Staff Sergeant Charlie Linville was blasted several yards into the air by a tertiary explosive device. By the time he landed in the blast crater, he had suffered devastating injuries to his right foot and hand. By summer of 2013, despite over a year of attempts at rehabilitation, he lost his right foot to an amputation below the knee.

In the spring of 2014, he will climb Mount Everest.

This extraordinary and inspiring turnaround is a result of The Heroes Project, an initiative created by former Hell’s Angels biker Tim Medvetz, himself the victim of a catastrophic motorcycle crash on September 10, 2001. Taking control of his own rehabilitative process, Medvetz rejected a prognosis that said he would never walk again, fighting through his pain to pursue a rigorous training regimen that ultimately took him to the top of Everest. When he scales Everest for the third time, it will be as coach, guide and champion of USMC SSgt. Charlie Linville.

Since 2009, The Heroes Project has been a leading advocate for veterans’ issues, leading a three-pronged campaign to expand community service programs serving veterans, support educational and media outreach addressing the unique needs and success stories of veterans’ care, and most remarkably, lead a series of expeditions that enable gravely wounded veterans to rediscover their strength and pride by scaling the world’s most challenging summits. To date, Medvetz has coached and supported veterans—each of them amputees—to the highest peaks on every continent on earth, except Everest. The journey is transformative.

Inspired by the sacrifices incurred by these veterans in the line of duty, Medvetz meets them on equal footing. There is no pity, and no regret—just the bonds born of common experience and ferocious determination.

Your contribution will help to drive SSgt. Charlie Linville to the summit of Everest this spring, and help The Heroes Project bring the stories of veterans to communities, media outlets and supportive agencies and programs across the nation. There is no greater gift than the opportunity to restore a veteran’s pride, dignity and vitality despite the sacrifices their service has exacted, and it’s your generosity that will help these damaged warriors rediscover the spirit of heroism that animated their selfless resolve to serve their country. We hope you’ll consider a donation to support The Heroes Project.
