Wounded Warrior Dan Nevins
Dan Nevins, embodies the Basecamp spirit of living BOLD. A highly decorated soldier, Dan was severely injured during combat in Iraq in 2004 after an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated beneath his vehicle. He lost both legs below the knee, and lives with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the emotional wounds of war. Dan credits Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) with his successful rehabilitation, which instilled a “can-do” attitude, positive outlook and passion for helping his fellow wounded warriors in him. He quickly became an advocate for the organization, inspiring both his peers and the public to create positive change for themselves and those around them, simply by sharing his powerful story. Dan’s adventures have taken him around the world; from climbing Uhuru Peak in Tanzania to teaching yoga at the White House, Dan continues to share his bold life with audiences around the world. Dan’s current project is the development of the Warrior Spirit Retreat, A Place Where Warriors Learn To Heal. Proceeds from 2018 sales of Basecamp items resulted in a donation of over $100,000 to the Warrior Spirit Retreat fund!
