No Barriers Warriors program - Empowering local veterans
America’s rural communities are home to millions of men and women who have served in our armed forces, many of whom are living with a disability. We have teamed up with our financial partner, CoBank, to support local veterans with disabilities through the No Barriers Warriors program, which offers five-day expeditions in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. By sharing the experience with other veterans with disabilities, participants build a network of support that can last a lifetime.
More than just a mountain vacation, the program provides an opportunity for veterans with disabilities to challenge their own limitations. Activities are tailored to accommodate disabilities, including PTSD, and include mountaineering, rafting, and rock climbing. Expeditions take place in June and July.
The program is open to veterans of any age and any branch of service. To be eligible, the veteran must be an ECE member and have a VA disability rating.
CoBank will cover the full cost of any veteran selected. No Barriers will evaluate the nominations and select the final participants.
If you would like to participate in this program, fill out and return application by April 10. If you would like to nominate another veteran or have questions, please contact Desiree Cuda 763-689-8031, firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t delay!
