Disabled Veterans

The above story is one example of the many touching and shocking stories of the disabled war verterans who joined us for this leg. Christopher Gross from Pompeii's Pillar, Montana retells the events that led to his injuries in Afghanistan in 2007. He joined us today with help from Woudened Warriors, a support program for disabled veterans, and Team River Runner, which "gives military veterans and their family members an opportunity to find health, healing, and new challenges through whitewater boating and other paddling sports." The group was an inspiring and moving addition to the Challenge and also led to highlight some of the needs of disabled and handicapped people.
