US Congressman Chris Gibson to Address
26 Regional Wounded Warriors

Troy, NY – Twenty-six regional Wounded Warriors and their families begin arriving to the Capital District today for the 10th anniversary STRIDE Wounded Warrior Snowfest, for a weekend of healing through adaptive sports. Arriving in Troy, they will spend time at a meet and greet dinner tonight at the Hilton Garden Inn, take a tour of the New York capitol Friday, and then join STRIDE’s team of instructors at Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort learning how to ski and snowboard on Saturday and Sunday. The Warriors primarily hail from New York, and from Warrior Transition units such as Fort Drum. This year marking the 10th year that STRIDE Adaptive Sports has hosted the event, special attention has been paid to inviting alumni Warriors from years past to play a part in the event as mentors and promoting the STRIDE mission that healing comes in giving service to others. Twelve Warriors are brand new to STRIDE, while they have fourteen alumni mentors to guide and encourage them on the slopes.
