the Wounded Warrior
Project.
July 25-26, 2005

Colorado Discover Ability has teamed up with Disabled Sports USA (web site) and Challenge Aspen (web site) to provide an exciting white water river trip to our newest generation of veterans who have been severely injured during the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Colorado Discover Ability organized this trip in partnership with Adventure Bound River Expeditions in Grand Junction, Colorado. This was a two-day trip through a magnificent Westwater Canyon in eastern Utah.
