Rise Broadband is sponsoring this No Barriers Warriors team-building expedition to help veterans with disabilities from all military branches tackle and overcome personal challenges. Rise Broadband will support the training and weeklong expedition of 12 veterans as they complete a 30-mile trek through the wilderness.

These team-building challenge expeditions are designed to push veterans physically and mentally, providing a training ground for stretching goals, facing adversity, and stepping up to lead and serve others. Rise Broadband is proud to participate because many of our employees and customers have served and protected us through military service. We are excited to give back by helping them to return home and reconnect with their communities.
