Have you heard of the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic? This event brings nearly 400 disabled veterans from across the country to the Roaring Fork Valley near Aspen, Colorado for recreation therapy and community building. This awesome clinic for injured veterans began on Monday, March 30 and runs through April, 03 2015.
You can keep up with the event's happenings over at the Adaptive Sports - U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs Facebook Page.
According to the website for the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic...
"Participating Veterans, seriously wounded while protecting our freedom, have an opportunity to pack more miracles into the weeklong, life-changing event than they ever dreamed possible. They are reminded of the wonder and achievement life still has to offer, despite their profound disabilities.
After conquering a snowcovered mountainside, everyday challenges of life seem much more surmountable for these participants who’ve lost a limb or sight, or endure paralysis. Our Veterans draw inner strength from this experience of a lifetime and use it to overcome life’s challenges head-on when they return home. They also inspire those without disabilities to catch their spirit and go after their dreams."
