WHY WE’RE DOING IT
Our primary goal is to raise awareness for military Veterans. The military spends thousands on turning a civilian into a solider, but it’s become increasingly apparent that the same cannot be said for supporting a soldier once their back in civilian environments. We want to highlight this matter and support the charities that are doing their part to support those who have served.
Beyond raising awareness for veterans, we want to encourage others, regardless of their background, to get outside of their comfort zone through outdoor adventure.
