National nonprofit will bring veterans, service members, caregivers, and supporters to hike the Grand Canyon

"This trip is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for any adventurer and it will raise funds for military families who have made many sacrifices for our freedom.” Chris Sharon, Hope For The Warriors® Senior Director of Career Transition & Education.

Hope For The Warriors® is partnering with Conquer The Canyon® to take veterans, service members, caregivers, staff, and supporters on a guided adventure in Arizona to hike the Grand Canyon from May 5-8, 2016.

The adventure will raise funds and awareness for Hope For The Warriors® to support programs which assist combat wounded service members, their families, and families of the fallen by restoring self, family, and hope. Hope For The Warriors® will sponsor 20 service members, veterans, and caregivers to participate in the hike. Other participants are required to meet a fundraising goal of $4,500 and provide their own transportation to and from Arizona. Registration is open here: http://www.hopeforthewarriors.org/ConquerTheCanyon.

Hope For The Warriors® Clinical Health & Wellness and Sports & Recreation staff members will raise their own funds and attend the hike in a supportive role, working with the sponsored veterans, service members, and caregivers.

“As popular as the Grand Canyon is, hiking it is rare—less than 1% of visitors ever set foot on any trails,” said Chris Sharon, Hope For The Warriors® Senior Director of Career Transition & Education. “This trip is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for any adventurer and it will raise funds for military families who have made many sacrifices for our freedom.”
