Rayonier Hunting Clubs are home to a diverse group of Americans, including veterans. As a proud supporter of our troops, we are honored to tell you about the No Barriers project, which is now accepting nominations for their Warriors program. This incredible opportunity is sponsored by CoBank, who is giving 50 disabled veterans the chance to participate in a life-changing wilderness experience in July and August of 2019 at no cost.
This unique program gives disabled veterans an unprecedented opportunity to test their limits, expand their boundaries, and gain an invaluable support system. The all-inclusive expeditions will take place over a five to seven-day period in breathtaking Colorado landscapes. The expeditions are designed to challenge each veteran both mentally and physically.
“No Barriers showed me I can still do amazing things.” Zachary, US Navy/US Army Veteran
Co-founded by Erik Weihenmayer, the first blind person ever to reach the summit of Mt. Everest, the expeditions are specifically designed for a wide range of disabilities including amputation, PTSD, brain injuries, and severe burns.
Nominations will be open until April 2019. In January, nominees will be able to start applying to the expeditions, which will take place in July and August, and the Summit, which will take place in June.
Watch as participants of a 2018 expedition climbed Mt. Whitney, the highest mountain in the contiguous US.
“Each person on this team has grown tremendously... It has changed my life. I’m a better father, husband and grandfather for it- and a better person.” Mark, US Air Force Veteran
“I think this type of healing is how veterans are going to find true healing… how they’re going to better their lives. The physical activity helps you release that trauma; helps you work through it.” Justin, U.S. Marine Corps
