A group of seven veterans participating in the Nike Wild Canyon Games in Oregon.
The American Warrior Initiative and Building Champions sent a group of seven veterans to participate in the Nike Wild Canyon Games in Oregon. All seven veterans were Marines and hadn’t been reunited for ten years.

The Wild Canyon Games included running, swimming, biking, geocaching, climbing, zip lining, and obstacle course events. Teams of seven members worked to earn points while competing in events ranging from a 15.5-mile mountain bike race to a multi-leg relay competition. This was the 10th and final Wild Canyon Games, making it even more of a fantastic experience that these veterans were able to participate together.

The American Warrior Initiative (AWI) is a national non-profit organization sponsored by Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation. AWI seeks to ease the transition for U.S. veterans between military and civilian life. The mission of AWI is to inspire, educate and give back to our military and their families.

I am proud to work for a company that works so hard to honor those who sacrifice for our country. If I can answer any questions about VA loans or any other home loan options, give me a call.
