Wilder Honors Wounded Soldiers with Time at the Ranch
Last month, Wilder on Taylor hosted two military groups for a few days of relaxation and fly fishing. Wilder welcomed wounded soldiers from Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) and Warfighter Sports through the local Adaptive Sports Center (ASC). Wilder has partnered with PHWFF for the last four years to bring wounded soldiers to Wilder. It’s a way to honor the men and women who courageously serve our country. This year, Wilder also worked with ASC to host injured soldiers participating in ASC’s Operation Rise and Conquer initiative. All of the soldiers and their mentors were able to relax, take in the scenery, and go fly fishing on the Taylor River with master guide Lu Warner.
Both organizations are dedicated to serving the men and women in uniform. The PHWFF connects wounded soldiers to recreational opportunities like fly fishing to assist in the physical and emotional rehabilitation. The ASC provides high-quality adventure activities in and around Crested Butte for military service personnel.
Wilder was delighted to share the breathtaking views and world class fly fishing with these brave men and women. “We are honored to be involved with two organizations that focus on true American heroes and their dedication to our country,” says Ron Welborn, development partner at Wilder on the Taylor.
