Veterans On The 48
Veterans On The 48 is a registerd 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to getting more veterans outside and onto the trails to promote healthy lifestyles both physically and mentally.
What We Do:
We organize and lead group hikes for veterans and service members on the various 48 4,000-foot mountains in NH.
We provide those who summit all 48 4,000-foot mountains with our official VOT48 finishers patch and completion letter.
We send veterans and service members to Wilderness First Aid classes at no cost.
We help purchase hiking gear for veterans and service members.
We have an all veteran/service member volunteer Trail Crew where our members receive training and certification in Level 1 trail maintenance to assist with work on our 3 mile long adopted trail; Tecumseh Trail via Tripoli Road.
Partner with other veterans groups who share our passion to help our veteran community.
Congratulations to Marine Corps veteran Mark O'Donoghue who completed his NH48 on Saturday, October 28th when he summitted Mount Carrigain! Mark is now the 73r recipient of our VOT48 official finishers patch. Congratulations, brother!
How You Can Help:
There are many ways you can help us continue our mission of creating outdoor experiences for our veterans and service members such as referring a veteran to us who may benefit from simply taking a hike or meeting some fellow veterans. The most direct way however, is to donate. By making a tax-deductible donation to VOT48, you will be helping us purchase gear such as backpacks, boots, and trekking poles for veterans. These items when gifted to our veteran hikers, greatly offset the financial burden of purchasing their own gear which may prevent them from being able to experience the outdoors. Your donation will also help cover the cost of sending veterans to Wilderness First Aid classes where they will learn new skills and techniques to better prepare them for situations they may encounter while on the trail (injuries, weather, etc).
