The 2017 No Barriers Warriors to Summits team is continuing to work together to overcome barriers. The team of veterans with disabilities completed their second expedition — climbing the Wind River Range in the Rocky Mountains in Wyoming — July 14-20.
No Barriers Warriors is one of three programs the nonprofit No Barriers USA provides. The Warriors program “improves the lives of veterans with disabilities through curriculum-based experiences in challenging environments,” according to the organization. This year’s team first trained in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado in June, and their final expedition will be Sept. 6-18 climbing Mount Brooks in Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska, highlighted by a summit attempt of Mount Brooks on Sept. 11.
