Taking wounded vets to the summits of the highest mountains in the world
Introduction

THE HEROES PROJECT is an organization that works with the veterans, soldiers, marines, and military families and communities on all levels. Its mission is to improve the care and protection of heroes through individual support, community empowerment and systemic change. The core work of the Heroes Project includes three initiatives:

01. CLIMBS FOR HEROES

Under the leadership of Tim Wayne Medvetz, The Heroes Project supports climbing programs for wounded marines,soldiers and veterans. The Foundation puts our injured war veterans on some of the highest summits of the world. Video footage of the climbs will be used as part of advocacy and empowerment programs to inspire thousands of our other injured veterans.

02. HOPE FOR HEROES

The Heroes Project aims to encourage and expand community service programs that support our nation’s heroes. The Heroes Project promotes and augments the good work of organizations working with this community across the country.

03. VOICES FOR HEROES

Finally, The Heroes Project plans to conduct media campaigns to highlight success stories in veterans care as well as conduct education activities to decision makers and the general public about the needs and successes in caring for veterans and military families.
