    DownRange Excursions provides tangible and healthy, therapeutic alternative options for our nation's veterans and service members who struggle with combat PTSD, substance abuse, over medication, and other service related issues.

By providing gym memberships through Quad City Strongman, and DownRange Excursions such as paddling, hiking, camping, and rock climbing, veterans and service members are given a new outlook on life and introduced to healthy alternative coping methods. These methods drastically improve their mental well-being, giving them the ability to move forward in civilian life with a new drive and perspective that they may have been missing.

With this partnership we are able to provide a schedule for a healthier lifestyle without the use of medications, substance abuse, or isolation.
