A Trek to the Top
In 2014, the True Patriot Love expedition team skied 100 km to the Magnetic North Pole, concluding the largest ever expedition of its kind. The team of 24 corporate leaders and 12 ill and injured soldiers worked together to conquer the physical and mental challenges posed by long days and nights in extreme weather. The 2014 Magnetic North Pole Expedition raised $2.1 million, which helped fund five critical programs that support service men and women, Veterans and their families.
“True Patriot Love has opened the doors of opportunity for me. When I was first asked to go on the North Pole Expedition, I was uncertain of what to expect and where I was on my road to recovery. The Expedition, the struggles and the austere environment provided the right tools to help me deal with some of my toughest issues. Coupled with the unending care and willingness to help from every single business leader, it made this stage of my journey a complete success.”
