Now in its 28th year, the 2014 National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic was held March 30 through April 4 in Snowmass Village, Col., bringing together nearly 400 U.S. military veterans and active duty service men and women with disabilities to conquer a snow-covered mountainside.   Participants were provided adaptive winter sports instruction from more than 200 certified ski instructors– including current and former members of the U.S. Disabled Ski Team.  They also took part in a number of activities including alpine and cross country skiing, rock climbing, scuba diving, kayaking, snowmobiling and more.

For more than a decade, AstraZeneca has been a national sponsor of the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic, which is co-sponsored by DAV (Disabled American Veterans) and The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.  AstraZeneca’s support this year helped fund a weeklong stay in Snowmass for approximately 200 participants.

AstraZeneca is involved in a number of other initiatives throughout the year to support and make a difference in the lives of our military men and women.
