2016 USX Veteran Everest Expedition
We have exceeded our expenses and the team has launched the USX Everest Expedition. Now, every dollar you donate goes to 2 nonprofit organizations that work directly with veterans to provide counseling care and services for service members with mental health issues— Give an Hour and Stop Soldier Suicide. Help us provide solutions to PTSD and summit Mt. Everest!
USX is a Veteran nonprofit organization founded by active duty service members and Veterans. USX empowers Veterans and Soldiers to inspire others and help those in need in order to overcome mental health issues related to military service. We do this through small outdoor expedition teams fostering camaraderie and a renewed sense of purpose and service. In doing do so, USX and its Veterans will spread the spirit of the American Soldier and raise awareness for Soldier mental health. USX focuses on three areas: Nexus Expeditions, Research and Development Initiatives, and Adventurous Training.
USX has launched its first expedition to Mt. Everest. By climbing all 29,029 feet to the summit of Mt. Everest, our team of Veteran and Soldier climbers will show the incredible resiliency of our nation’s service members. In doing so, USX will place the first ever combat wounded Veteran atop the world, the first active duty Soldier atop Everest, and most importantly, USX will raise awareness and funds to support mental health initiatives for Veterans.
While members of our climbing team have struggled with PTSD and even suicide, they are not alone—many Soldiers within the military are in need of your support. We want to be a part of the solution. Help us by raising awareness and funds for our fellow Soldiers who are struggling with the same invisible wounds our climbers have.
Every dollar you donate makes a real impact in the lives of our Veteran climbers and Veterans throughout our nation. We encourage you to donate whatever you can. Even the smallest of amounts can make a large impact. If you can’t donate, please share to help raise awareness for our cause.
