No Barriers Warriors, Wells Fargo Seek Veterans with Disabilities for “Warriors to Summits” Expeditions

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (FNN NEWS ) — No Barriers Warriors and Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) are seeking veterans with disabilities for the Warriors to Summits 2016 Expedition Series.  Teams will embark on three separate, but equally grueling expeditions. Participants will push their boundaries through these transformative journeys while reflecting on their past, recognizing where they are now and developing a vision for their future.

Eligible veterans can apply for one of three epic expeditions:

  • Expedition I: June 11 – 17, Wind River Range, Wyoming
  • Expedition II: July 9 – 15, Presidential Range, New Hampshire
  • Expedition III: October 1 – 10, San Juan Mountain Range, Colorado

Note that the San Juan Mountain Range expedition will have the first team solely made up of Warriors to Summits alumni. Participants from 2014 Mt. Whitney, 2015 Gannett Peak, and this year’s Wind River Range, and Presidential Range expeditions are all eligible to apply to be a part of San Juan Mountain Range team.

Warriors to Summits is one of many experiences No Barriers Warriors offers to empower veterans with disabilities to overcome barriers and unleash their potential.  This year, Warriors to Summits will serve more veterans than years past through these series of backcountry expeditions across the United States, a first for the Warriors to Summits experience.

This is the third consecutive year Wells Fargo has teamed up with No Barriers Warriors through its sponsorship of Warriors to Summits.

“We’re excited to once again join forces with Wells Fargo, double the number of veterans we serve and continue to transform veteran’s lives through the No Barriers Life,” said John Toth, Director for No Barriers Warriors.

Wells Fargo’s sponsorship continues to focus on supporting veterans with disabilities, and the communities around them.

“The goal of our sponsorship is to help empower veterans,” said Jerry Quinn, Wells Fargo Military & Veterans Program Manager. “Together, we will be able to serve more wounded veterans directly, and significantly impact those around them, including their battle-buddies, caregivers, fellow veterans, and their communities.”

To apply or nominate a veteran for Warriors to Summits 2016 Expedition Series or to find additional information, please visit WarriorstoSummits.org. Applications will be accepted through March 4, 2016, 5 p.m. Mountain Time.
