Meet the Team: 5-Day Basecamp August 17th – 21st

 

EXPEDITION DESCRIPTION 

The five day basecamp expeditions are multi-discipline expeditions. They occur in the Red Feather Lakes region of Colorado at our No Barriers Campus. Together, this team will experience the No Barriers Life while white-water rafting the Poudre River, climbing our exclusive rock formations, and trekking through the Colorado backcountry. While at our rural camp, they will cook together, rest up from each day’s challenge, and spend time with fellow veterans.

ABOUT THE SPONSOR

For generations, rural America has produced a disproportionate share of our armed forces. As a mission-based organization with a focus on agriculture and rural communities, CoBank wanted to create a program that would allow the bank to give back to our nation’s rural veterans in a substantive way, in partnership with its customers. Through this partnership with No Barriers, eligible customers of the bank can nominate veterans with disabilities from rural communities to participate in a five-day No Barriers Warriors expedition.
