THIS WILL BE THE WEST COAST’S FIRST ADAPTIVE SPORTING EVENT IN WHICH VETERANS AND FIRST RESPONDERS WITH AND WITHOUT DISABILITIES CAN PARTICIPATE ALONGSIDE ONE ANOTHER!
- ABOUT THE EVENTThe Courage Weekend will be a blend of low-intensity and high-intensity sports. The newly adaptive and the seasoned athlete will both be challenged through this weekend with the goal of promoting a stronger community amongst the veteran and first responder population in LA County and beyond.
Events like the Courage Weekend allow veterans to maintain the social support of their military friends. When this social support is maintained, the likelihood of veterans experiencing PTSD is 57% lower. – Wounded Warrior Project
