What an amazing day! On Sat., Aug. 29, our recently chartered SDIA Western NC Chapter hosted 23 Combat Wounded Veterans and First Responders injured in the line of duty for the Spartan Super Race in Asheville, NC. In addition to their sponsored participants, more than 30 SDIA Members and supporters from across the US joined in on the race. WNC members and staff put a lot of time and effort into this event, and we could not have asked for a better effort in making this such a special event. Watching all the Warriors persevere to finish 8.5 miles and 25 obstacles was inspiring to say the least!
