Empowering Veterans with Disabilities to Challenge the Ordinary through Extreme Sports

The Challenge Accepted team and participating veterans stand in front of a helicopter with a 'Challenge Accepted' sign, ready to go at Sun Valley, Idaho

Our heart: Honor veterans for all they did.

Our vision: Change one life at a time.

The how: Epic snowboarding accessible only by helicopter, small group cohesion with like-minded people, civilian reintegration, health and wellness…and of course physical/social healing, connections, and a wellness plan to bring back home.

You’ve already climbed the mountain…Now it’s time to fly!

Get involved. Support our veterans. Better your own path and the paths of your brothers and sisters in arms.

Many never got the welcome home, support, or thanks deserved. Our goal is to be a part of filling that gap. If you want to support us as we support our veterans with disabilities, consider a donation, whether it be financial, airline miles, new snowboarding gear for raffles, or a sponsorship dinner at your restaurant.

Applications for veteran participants will be accepted soon so stay tuned for updates. Continue to follow us on the web and check out our social media.

“This weekend has marked me and challenged me to be better on the hill and better for my fellow veterans…The food and the fellowship was tremendous at the Lodge! Great people there and great atmosphere…I don’t skip a beat on the brotherhood we’ve already formed. Just so excited to know I’ve got a handful of new brothers to build and tear down walls.”

“The healing that happens on these trips creates lasting healthy relationships between individuals with all types of trauma/injuries and without. Closing the gap between military veterans and civilians and creating a mutual respect and understanding through which an unmatched healing process ensues that otherwise may have not been attainable through normal therapeutic means. So thank you from the deepest reaches of my soul.”
