Iron Bow Sponsors Ski Event for Disabled Veterans

April 21st, 2011

Chantilly, VA – April 21, 2011

Iron Bow Technologies, a technology solutions provider, was a proud sponsor of the 25th National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic. The event, which took place from March 27, 2011 to April 1, 2011 in Snowmass Village, Colorado, was the largest annual rehabilitation event of its kind.

Nearly 400 disabled veterans participated in the week-long clinic, which was open to all U.S. military veterans who receive care at Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care facilities. During the program, veterans with spinal cord injuries or disease, visual impairments, certain neurological conditions, orthopedic amputations or other disabilities, were introduced to a variety of adaptive activities and sports, such as skiing, rock climbing, scuba diving, snowmobiling, fly fishing and sled hockey.

“We are honored to provide our support for the veterans that have been injured or disabled in the service of our country,” said Rene LaVigne, President and CEO of Iron Bow Technologies. “As supporters for the past eight years, we are proud to provide the financial support, technology and manpower to assist the Department of Veterans Affairs and Disabled American Veterans to ensure that this important annual event is a success.”

In addition to the sponsorship, Iron Bow employees volunteered their time to help veterans register, ski, snowmobile and participate in a variety of other activities. The company also donated technology equipment and services so that the activities could be recorded and streamed throughout the facility.

“We rely on the generosity of sponsors to make this event possible and Iron Bow has once again come through to help make this event the best of its kind in the world,” said Wallace E. “Wally” Tyson, DAV’s National Commander.
