In 2013, I ran into Tim and injured USMC Cpl. Kionte Storey while hiking up to Mt. Baldy. This moment absolutely floored me as I witnessed Kionte climb with one leg. I went home and googled The Heroes Project and discovered that Tim was holding a fundraiser on Mt. Baldy called Climb For Heroes. I said to myself, “It’s my turn to give back. These guys & gals go out to war and sacrifice their well-being to protect my freedom. Being involved and seeing these vets rehabilitate and reach their summit comes first now.” I reached out to Tim and volunteered for Climb For Heroes in 2013 and have been working with The Heroes Project ever since. This foundation is the epitome of inspiration and has opened doors I never thought I’d walk through.
