Wounded Warriors Rig for Skiing, Rock Climbing, Other Winter Sports
Date:3/31/2008

PHOENIX, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Seriously wounded veterans will learn to ski, rock climb, drive snowmobiles, and scuba dive -- sports they may have thought they would never do -- at the 22nd National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic March 30 to April 4 in Snowmass Village, Colo.

TriWest Healthcare Alliance, serving 2.9 million members of America's military family in 21 western states, signed as the clinic's host sponsor as apart of a broad corporate giving initiative to help wounded warriors, veterans, service members and their families.

"Wounded warriors will push themselves and learn new ways to enjoy winter sports, and that can give them the promise of a full life that they may have thought they lost in combat," said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr. "The clinic is a vital part of their rehabilitation and an extraordinary tool for them to use in building rewarding lives and enjoying an active lifestyle. That's why TriWest is an avid supporter of this clinic."

The clinic is open to veterans with traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or disease, orthopedic amputations, visual impairments, certain neurological conditions, and other disabilities, who receive care at a VA medical facility or military treatment facility. Of the 400 veterans attending, 67 were wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In 2007, 124 newly injured military personnel participated in the Clinic, according to the clinic's organizers, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Disabled American Veterans.
