The CWVC Challenge expeditions are physically and psychologically demanding extreme outdoor efforts. These rehabilitative high adventure and therapeutic expeditions, led by other combat wounded veterans, provide sufficiently arduous, reasonably achievable, and extremely motivational experiences.
While on these grueling challenges, our Challenge Warriors continue to give of themselves by voluntarily participating in field work and case studies that further the medical physiological, biomedical and pathological sciences associated with their injuries. The field work conducted during the Challenge expeditions produce breakthrough gains in the fields of traumatic brain injuries, Post-traumatic stress, orthotics and prosthetics. In healing themselves, they help others.
The teams are tested mentally and physically in extreme conditions. If the veterans can literally and figuratively “climb a mountain” then the goal of transitioning becomes less daunting and more attainable. The camaraderie of again being part of a team…a mission with objectives…achieving success…gives the veterans the confidence to seek assistance and know they are not alone.
Over many years, teams of wounded veterans, servicemen and advanced researchers will continue taking their expeditions to Alaska’s mountains and glaciers, remote rivers and valleys, Polar Regions and to the “Seven Summits” of the world.
