The Maine Second Chance Lodge opens June 24, 2017, welcoming combat-injured veterans and their families for week-long summer experiences. 

On April 10, 2012, United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne was critically injured on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan by an IED (improvised explosive device) while on patrol, losing portions of both legs and both arms. He is one of only five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive his injuries. His foundation is creating a national retreat to help veteran families unite with the land, water, nature and each other to revitalize themselves and to keep moving forward. The retreat will be uniquely designed to provide state-of-the-art “smart home” technology in a relaxed lodge setting. It will fill a vital role in recovery, camaraderie, spousal support, re-connection, and reintegration. Veteran families from all over the United States will enjoy a week of swimming, boating, fishing, site-seeing, campfires, adaptive sports, and much more.We are honored to be associated with the Travis Mills Foundation as our Official Beneficiary Organization. Take a moment through the image link below to acquaint yourself with this selfless American hero who lives every day by the inspiration....“Never give up. Never quit.”  Following the 2016 event, USA SwimRun was pleased to contribute $10,000 to the foundation, and we look forward to increasing the 2017 award.
