Soldiers To Summits (S2S) helps disabled veterans shatter personal barriers and reclaim lives by using mountaineering as the learning tool for setting ambitious goals, building world-class teams, innovating through obstacles, and stepping up to lead and serve others. For the S2S program, the mountains serve as the metaphor and training ground for helping to restructure how to deal with a certain past and uncertain future, while integrating with the existing rehab process. Any injured service member, from any service branch, active or retired, with any disability is eligible to apply. Climbing experience is not required or expected, but you do need a base level of physical fitness, a willingness to grow and a big heart.
"My Everest team and I felt privileged to participate in the inaugural S2S expedition to Mt Lobuche in Nepal, and more importantly, we are fully invested in carrying forward the No Barriers mindset to help shatter barriers!” –Erik Weihenmayer
