About Vail Veterans Program

Since 2004, the Vail Veterans Program has provided therapeutic, rehabilitative sports and recreation programs to severely injured military and their families, transforming lives and giving hope for the future. During the veterans’ military service they sustained severe injuries; a loss of limb(s), traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, and/or spinal cord injuries. Throughout the year wounded veterans and their families come to Vail, CO to participate in three, four, and five day programs including goal setting, adaptive sports training, family time, relationship building, and mentoring. VVP’s™ programs are free to all participants. The VVP also sponsors therapeutic retreats for individual families, provides psychologically healing services for VVP participants, and annually co-sponsors a team of military injured to run the Army 10-Miler race in Washington, DC. This year the VVP added new programs to support the needs of caregivers and the empowerment of our alumni.
