How Barrier Free Adaptive Recreation Helps Veterans With The Travis Mills Foundation
This Throwback Thursday episode was originally shared in October 2018.
Kelly Roseberry PT, DPT is the Program Director for the Travis Mills Foundation. She joined the Foundation after spending several years as a full time Physical Therapist and Center Coordinator of Clinical Education at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. She relocated to Maine in the summer of 2017.
The Travis Mills Foundation supports post 9/11 recalibrated veterans and their families through long-term programs that help these heroic men and women overcome physical obstacles, strengthen their families, and provide well-deserved rest and relaxation.
We support these veterans through our nationally recognized retreat located in the Belgrade Lakes Region of Maine. Veteran families who have been injured in active duty or as a result of their service to our nation receive an all-inclusive, all-expenses paid, barrier-free vacation in Maine where they participate in adaptive activities, bond with other veteran families, and enjoy much-needed rest and relaxation in Maine’s outdoors.
In 2017 we hosted 84 veteran families that participated in adaptive sports and activities.
