Rise Broadband’s 3rd Annual “No Barriers Warriors Rocky Mountain Veteran Expedition” Names Twelve Participants
Rise Broadband, the country’s largest fixed wireless broadband service provider, and No Barriers Warriors have selected 12 wounded veterans for its all expenses paid Rocky Mountain Veteran Expedition helping veterans address personal challenges and eliminate obstacles as they rejoin families and communities. Selected from nominations by Rise Broadband customers and the general public, co-ed vets and four experienced guides will convene in Rise’s home state of Colorado from September 23 to 30 for this 3rd annual mountain training. The week includes a 20-mile wilderness trek, strenuous climb, summit attempt, community service project and more; all designed to push team members physically and mentally while learning how to better face adversity, stretch goals and lead/serve others.
“We are very proud to be actively involved in our third No Barriers Expedition because many of our employees and customers have served and protected our country through military service,” said Jack Koo, Rise Broadband’s president and chief executive officer. “We are honored to give back to these 12 vets and their families by providing support as they rejoin their communities.”
The Expedition Participants:
Bradley Bartlett – U.S. Army (TX)
Timothy Hilgner – U.S. Army (CO)
Waco Blakley – U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marine Corps (OK)
“Our 3rd Annual Rocky Mountain Veteran Expedition had an incredible response and another record number of nominations,” said Dave Shurna, Executive Director of No Barriers USA. “The selected individuals represent a very deserving field of candidates and we look forward to working closely with them over our eight days while introducing them to the No Barriers Life!”
The team members now begin individual training to prepare for the challenges ahead and will meet in Denver on September 23. About Rise Broadband
