Warriors to Summits is a transformative experience provided by No Barriers Warriors. No Barriers empowers veterans and transitioning service members with disabilities to overcome barriers and unleash their potential.

The program provides a place for veterans to push themselves, both physically and mentally, harness adversity and connect with other veterans.

For the final expedition in the 2016 Warriors to Summits Series, 13 veteran alumni from previous Warriors to Summits expeditions - 2014 Mt. Whitney, 2015 Gannett Peak, and 2016 Gila Wilderness and Presidential Range – will come together for an experience in the rugged San Juan Mountain Range within the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

In preparation for this October expedition, the team will train in Colorado State Forest State Park this August. The veterans were chosen based on their desire to continue their journey to live a fulfilling and purposeful No Barriers Life.
