Our staff consists of current and previous military personnel and select professionals who are passionate about the welfare of veterans. Our program uses the term “dirt therapy” to describe our process of relieving the daily stresses our veterans encounter. Our program utilizes dual-sport and off-road motorcycles to take veterans on multi-day off-road adventures. The adventures are provided with no cost to the veteran.
