Dedicated to helping our nation’s heroes through extreme sports
We are a group of current conflict veterans that strive to help other combat veterans succeed through extreme sports.
We utilize as many veteran extreme sports as we can to take the edge out of civilian life.
Some of us have wounds left over from combat, others can't be seen - but we all benefit from getting out
and meeting people that have been in our shoes.
Blood Roadfollows the journey of ultra-endurance mountain bike athlete Rebecca Rusch and her Vietnamese riding partner, Huyen Nguyen, as they pedal 1,200 miles along the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail through the dense jungles of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Their goal: to reach the site where Rebecca’s father, a U.S. Air Force pilot, was shot down in Laos more than 40 years earlier. During this poignant voyage of self discovery, the women push their bodies to the limit, while learning more about the historic ‘Blood Road’ and how the Vietnam War shaped their lives in different ways.
XSPORTS4VETS is presenting this screening as a fundraiser.
Co-Hosted By UofM Outdoor Recreation, UofM Climbing Club, and UofM Team RWB!

Watch Our Documentary
The U.S.A. has deployed over 2.4 million men and women to hostile war zones since 9/11 alone. Some of these service members come back suffering from the scars of war, both physical and mental, but with others even harder to see. XSports4Vets started as a project in occupational therapy and quickly grew into something much larger and more personal for the veterans involved.
This documentary follows XSports4Vets in 2011, their first year of operation. Five years later, we are still going strong and have even more passion and drive to help veterans affected by war.
