(WTVM) – An organization based 2,000 miles away from Columbus is doing their part to help special operations soldiers on Fort Benning.
The founder and president of Big Sky Bravery, from Montana, is in the Chattahoochee Valley this week, raising awareness for the 3rd Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment.
The non-profit has special events planned for Columbus next month, but they also are getting the word out about what they do: bringing soldiers out west, when they get home from combat, to do high adrenaline recreational activities to decompress.
"Skiing, snowboarding, off-road ATV, back-country snowmobiling, rock climbing, things of that nature, whatever promotes their mind only thinking about the task at hand, rather than everything else around them," Josh McCain, Big Sky Bravery Founder/President.
Starting on June 26th, Big Sky Bravery will host a week-long Ranger regiment fundraiser in Columbus. It will start with a golf tournament, then a free concert on Broadway, and 5-K, 10-K races.
