Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center – The Wounded Warrior Project

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Friday, March 5th, 2010 at 4:48pm.

The Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) is a national leader in outdoor adventure education serving all people, while ensuring the outdoors is accessible to those with disabilities and/or special needs.

The BOEC was founded and established in Breckenridge, Colorado, in 1976 as a non-profit educational organization to provide outdoor experiences for people with disabilities and to train the instructors who work with special populations. The organization strives to integrate disability with ability, providing outdoor experiences to all - welcoming people from all around the world with all abilities.

This April, the BOEC and many local businesses are donating a week of relaxation and skiing in early April for 10 military heroes along with their families associated through the Wounded Warrior Project. Another local organization in the area is hoping to generate enough in donations to present a fully framed Breckenridge panoramic photograph to each of the families as a way of saying “thank you”.

The Wounded Warrior Project is designed to provide some much deserved mental and physical relief for the men and woman who serve in the military and protect our way of life by putting themselves in harms way.

A goal to raise $800-$900 has been set to purchase the matting and frames for these 26” x 10” panoramic photographs and ship them to these residences of the Wounded Warriors after their week in Breckenridge, Colorado.

The group putting together the photos and framing is called Real Marketing Tools. They can be reached at 970-390-9715.
