The Iditarod Project

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Two Army veterans decided to come up with a unique way to support the Wounded Warrior Project. They’re going to make the famous Iditarod trek, a perilous 1,100 mile journey via dog sled from the Knik/Big Lake area of Alaska to Nome. But, Mike Pilotte and John Miller are used to danger. Both are veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom and currently serve as proud members of A Troop 1-82 Cavalry, 41st IBCT, Oregon Army National Guard. Their adventure begins in March 2012, when you’ll be able to track their progress via GPS. Until then, donate to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Bates Footwear Partners with Wounded Warrior Project

Friday, January 28th, 2011

Bates Footwear has announced they will be partnering with Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), a nonprofit organization that supports thousands of wounded warriors each year during their transition back to civilian life.

WWP began when several veterans and friends, moved by stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq, took action to help others in need. What started as a program to provide comfort items to wounded servicemen and women has grown into a complete rehabilitative effort to assist warriors as they recover. Over 40,000 of our nation’s armed forces have been physically wounded during the current military conflicts. Hundreds of thousands more are estimated to be recovering from invisible wounds of war, including post-traumatic stress disorder, major depression, and traumatic brain injury.

WWP assists wounded warriors and their families through a holistic approach to their recovery. Whether through caregiver retreats, combat stress programs, career and education services, or adaptive sporting opportunities, WWP empowers warriors with the tools essential to not just survive their injuries but to thrive and achieve personal and professional success.

Manufacturing quality boots and shoes to protect the men and women that wear them is part of the value that drives Bates to give back. “We are grateful to show our support and gratitude to warfighters who have honored our country with incredible sacrifice by supporting a worthy cause such as Wounded Warrior Project” said Ron Woznick, Bates VP & General Manager.
