The national non-profit No Barriers will host its first No Barriers Warrior Challenge this summer in San Diego. The event is designed to help people transcend their personal barriers — physical, mental or intellectual.
We’ve helped a stroke survivor climb a 14,000-foot peak, inspired a man to lose 100 pounds, and motivated a heart attack survivor to hike again. On Aug. 16 we hope to inspire similar changes in hundreds of Californians in San Diego.
