Warriors to Summits

Benefit Category: Federal
Warriors to Summits Logo

Warriors to Summits is one of many experiential expeditions No Barriers Warriors offers. View our full list of current programs today.

No Barriers Warriors is a part of No Barriers USA, whose mission is to unleash the potential of the human spirit. No Barriers Warriors empowers veterans and transitioning service members with disabilities, and survivors of the fallen, to overcome barriers and unleash their potential. Experiences serve as both an opportunity for growth and catalyst for change, as these brave men and women stretch boundaries, build teams, innovate through adversity and step up to lead and serve others.

No Barriers Warriors expeditions use the mountain as both a metaphor and a training ground. Experiences are comprised of three phases: comprehensive preparation, the transformative event, and meaningful reintegration. Every experience is geared toward providing a catalyst for change, establishing a lifelong ropes team and giving warriors the tools to live a No Barriers Life.

Our expeditions have taken us to Nepal, Ecuador, Peru, the South Pole and locations around the U.S. including Mt. Whitney, the highest peak in the contiguous United States. Most recently, our 2015 Warriors to Summits expedition took us to Gannett Peak, WY in the Wind River Range. We are proud to announce that the team reached their summit at 12,800′ on September 11, 2015.

These expeditions are offered at no cost to veterans!
