Beneficiaries

The Golden Games is proud to announce our partnership with Huts for Vets, Trout Unlimited and American Whitewater.  It is our mission to raise awareness and expand the reach of these organizations for future service related missions.

Huts for Vets was founded in Aspen, Colorado in January 2013 to provide, at no cost to participants, wilderness and communal experiences as therapeutic healing for U.S. veterans and active-duty service members. Their mission is to help veterans adjust to and enjoy civilian life by gaining tools for enhancing mental, physical, spiritual and emotional health.
