Participating Groups: Operation TBI Freedom, Craig Hospital, Ft Carson SRU
We had a great group of men, women and children excited to learn archery from the RMS Gear staff. Dr. Joel Bach from the Colorado School of Mines also joined us and brought brand new adaptive archery equipment. The device allows a user to release the arrow using their shoulder and chin. This will be a gamer changer for individuals with disabilities to participate in archery with greater ease. The development of the device was a collaborative effort with our River Deed Foundation, our alliance member, Quality of Life Plus and Colorado School of Mines. The group had a fun day learning archery making friends and sharing a meal. Many thanks to RMS Gear staff and all the volunteers.
