Sheep Dog Impact Assistance (SDIA) has been invited by the National Park Service (NPS) to be their honored guests at a special Memorial Day/Centennial Celebration from May 29 through June 2 at Yosemite National Park as the NPS celebrates its 100th anniversary.

It is part of SDIA’s mission to ENGAGE, ASSIST, and EMPOWER our nation’s heroes – our Sheep Dogs – and we hope that this Yosemite Adventure inspires both Sheep Dogs and fellow Americans alike to engage in the outdoors for improved health and quality of life. Many of our members and volunteers will participate and benefit from the experience. But for our nation’s Combat Altered Veterans (CAV) and First Responders Injured in the Line of Duty (FRILD), participating in outdoor adventures is necessary to their healing and survival. To assist them in this healing, SDIA and Corporate Sponsors will sponsor 35 CAV and FRILD to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity, presenting them with new challenges that will test their rehabilitation skills, restore independence, and self confidence.

The Yosemite Adventure 2016 is one you won’t want to miss! SDIA Members and Volunteers interested in participating should contact CPerrin@SheepDogIA.org for detailed information on travel, anticipated costs, and necessary gear/provisions.

A special THANK YOU to our current corporate sponsors – Coleman, ClifBar, Walmart, Zantac, ProTrucks and CrossFit NWA – for their help in giving 35 CAV and FRILD the opportunity of a lifetime. If you or your company is interested in sponsorship for this event, please contact JMesko@SheepDogIA.org for more information.
