Nearly twenty-five disabled military veterans, most of who were injured in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, participated in the Veterans No Boundaries program at Sunday River this weekend. The program took place January 30th through February 2nd and this year’s event involved alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and a number of other activities at Sunday River, the Outdoor Center and various other locations throughout the Bethel area.
Veterans No Boundaries is a program of Maine Adaptive Sports & Recreation (Maine Adaptive) that provides recreational activities to veterans and active duty personnel with physical disabilities who require adaptive instruction, equipment and/or support in order to participate in sports. The Veterans No Boundaries program is held twice a year for veterans to help them either return to a sport or try a sport for the first time after becoming disabled. The program also seeks to involve family members and caregivers. Like all Maine Adaptive programs, the weekend and program is entirely free of charge for all attendees and many will be bringing family members to participate with them this weekend.
