Alaska Adventure 2013
Presented by The Tatitlek Corporation
June 23, 2013
The Alaska Native Village Corporation, The Tatitlek Corporation, has announced its collaboration with the  non-profit group, Ride 2 Recovery, designed to bring 28 veteran servicemen and women to Anchorage to participate in a mountain bike event running June 24-28, 2013 called the Alaska Adventure.  Additionally, six to eight service Project Hero participants from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson will also participate in this event.  Participation in this Alaska-based event will allow these veterans to experience a sense of normalcy, accomplishment, pride, camaraderie and relief from depression and other issues that accompany recovery and rehabilitation. 

R2R is an organization created by the Fitness Challenge Foundation in partnership with the Military and VA Volunteer Service Office, which seeks to benefit mental and physical rehabilitation programs for injured veterans and features cycling as the core activity. Funds raised by R2R support cycling programs at military and VA locations around the United States as well as support for equipment needed by the wounded servicemen and women participating in the event.
"The Tatitlek Corporation has been fortunate to serve several major military contracts", says Chairman of the Board Lloyd Allen. "The Tatitlek Corporation's involvement with the Ride 2 Recovery Alaska event is Tatitlek's opportunity to show our support to the military community and to assist in the improvement of the health and wellness of injured veterans."
