National Climbing Manager Craig DeMartino was able to present to a group from Denver schools about the ways we adapt and overcome in our sports and programs. Kids always have the best outlook about adversity and challenges, and the questions after, were full of fun and loaded with natural curiosity.

It was an honor to be recognized and to stand alongside the DAV Charitable Service Trust at the DAV National Convention in Tampa, Florida today. Their support has allowed us to continue expanding our reach to thousands of veterans and their families each year.

We look forward to bringing greater independence, healing, camaraderie, adventure and overall wellness to more veterans.

One of our favorite programs was captured by our favorite photographer, Marla Keown Photography! A big thank you to REI for sponsoring our Get Outdoors and Play Multisport Day last Thursday. We provided climbing, kayaking, paddleboarding and more to over 100 folks. We could not have done it without the volunteer support from Ball Corporation. These volunteers worked hard helping to move gear, setting up and tearing down, assisting our staff and connecting with our community!
