HOW YOUR DONATIONS MAKE A DIFFERENCE
In March 2010, Lance Corporal Kionte Storey was deployed to Afghanistan. While leading a team of Marines on patrol, Kionte was hit by an IED and sustained the loss of his lower right limb below the knee and compartment syndrome to his left leg. Today, Kionte refuses to let anything hold him back - he summited Mount Vinson Massif in Antarctica, conquering an impressive 16,067 foot elevation, all in honor of his fellow injured soldiers and those who lost their lives. He is now training and hopes to compete in track and field at the upcoming Rio Paralympics in 2016.
Today, with his service dog Koja by his side, Kionte now participates in events with CAF’s Operation Rebound.
“Failure is not an option for me, so success is my only goal!” – Kionte Storey, Retired Corporal USMC
More Info on CAF Operation Rebound
Many CAF Operation Rebound athletes are active duty and military retirees, police officers and firefighters. They were in top physical shape upon entering their service and often times, in an instant, faced the life-altering challenge of traumatic limb loss, a spinal cord injury or blindness. These resilient men and women face their injury as a challenge to overcome, instead of a life-limiting disability. Our athletes in turn give back to society by helping others rebound through success in sports and in life.
