Area of Focus: Community economic development

Summary: Sponsorship of rock climbing activity for participants in a Veteran transition program


Metroport Rotary partners with Gallant Few, a locally-based, nationwide non-profit founded and led by Karl Monger, Metroport Rotarian, to sponsor local veterans in rock climbing activity at a local climbing gym.

GallantFew provides activities, mentoring, connections and training to assist veterans to transition successfully into civilian life. Outreach activities like climbing provides team challenges that prevent isolation and provide companionship. Entry level challenges help vets use leadership and teamwork skills learned in the military to create entrepreneurial businesses, join successful organizations and become valued members of the community. The work of GallantFew is directed to reduce the high rate of suicide, homelessness and isolation for veterans in the US.
