Charlie and Devan at Children's Hospital

 

29 year old Marine Staff Sergeant Charlie Linville was severely injured in Afghanistan in 2010.  Thanks to the work of Tim Medvetz with the Heroes Project Charlie will attempt to climb the worlds tallest peek, and will do it all on just one leg.  Charlie is the Veteran Ambassador for a new non-profit forming here in the Treasure Valley entitled Warriors 2 Wellness.  W2W is the result of two non-profits collaborating (Ride to the Wall Foundation and Trevor’s Trek Foundation), to bring together children who have battled cancer and veterans so they can heal together.  For more information on Charlie’s heroic upcoming climb you can view the News Channel 7 segment and article here.
