Kokanee Derby to Benefit Veterans & Families
« on: April 20, 2022, 11:15:30 AM »

All proceeds benefit Cross the Divide’s Outdoor Program to help pay for Veterans and their families to travel and participate in hunting and fishing activities throughout the Pacific Northwest.

For more information about the derby or CTD call Andy Marcum at 541-263-1053.

Just promoting a non-profit that a buddy of mine runs for veterans and their families. This event benefits the organization he recently took over as executive director. He's a retired Navy Chaplain of 25 years and is passionate about investing in the lives of military veterans and their families.

Learn more about Cross the Divide: https://www.crossthedivide.us

Cross the Divide is the reincorporated entity originally founded as “Divide Camp”, a rustic camp that provided restoration and hope to combat veterans by creating a community of care and support in an outdoor setting. Through the vision, godly prayers and hard work of its founder, Julie Wheeler, Divide Camp started in 2009 as an outreach to post-9/11 combat wounded veterans in the Wallowa Mountains on the edge of eastern Oregon’s Eagle Cap Wilderness.

Cross the Divide relaunched in January 2022 as a faith-based, Christian nonprofit. It will expand the scope of its outreach to all veterans and their families while continuing programming for combat wounded veterans. It will continue to host events in Joseph, Oregon, while expanding to other locations around the United States.

Programs being planned for 2022:
- Wellness Retreat with retired Marine and author of Grounded and Cured, Dave Trombly
- Men’s personal growth retreat with leaders from Summit Initiative
- Every Man a Warrior retreat in WA
- Llama packing trip in the Wallowa Mountains, OR
- Father-daughter fishing trips in partnership with Family Lines out of Leavenworth, WA
- Marriage Retreats for the Navy SEAL Foundation and other veteran groups
- Blacktail Hunting Tactics Seminar in Bremerton, WA

Mission:
Helping veterans and their families navigate the challenging terrain of life, promoting healing, hope, strength and growth by reconnecting to each other as well as reconnecting with nature.

The Board of Directors currently consists of military veterans with Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps experience and a focus on ministry. Two are retired senior leaders with the Navy SEALs; the president served as commanding officer for GROUP ONE. One is a retired Admiral with the Navy Chaplain Corps. Another served with Army Special Operations for 11 years as a chaplain. Our treasurer retired after 32 years with the Air Force.


Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:3-5

Man, that would be a blast!
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.
Psalm 144.1

Looks like a great event from a great organization.  :tup:
