NEGAUNEE, Mich. (WLUC) - A U.P. based nonprofit organization is happy to announce recent expansions. Courage Incorporated is now offering winter programs.
Courage Incorporated takes people living with disabilities and disabled veterans on remote camping trips. Now, thanks to generous donations from True North Credit Union and the Superior Health Foundation, they are offering winter sports and ice fishing.
Also this year, Courage Inc. is offering free memberships at Anytime Fitness in Ishpeming, Gwinn, and Munising to disabled veterans as part of their ongoing Healthy Hero campaign, as well as Courage Christmas, an effort to donate Christmas gifts to families of disabled veterans. Courage Inc. is accepting donations of cash or gift cards at Mama Mia’s of Ishpeming, Junction 95 in Humboldt, and First Bank in Marquette.
“You'd be surprised what people can do when their perspective is changed and they have that opportunity,” said Nate Denofre, C.E.O. of Courage Incorporated. “That's what we're for. We help people that used to love going into the wilderness, used to love to do things, and it's just hard for them now. We make sure they can still do it. If you can sit in a wheelchair, you can sit in a canoe. That's always been my philosophy.”
Courage Incorporated is currently in need of volunteers with snowmobiles.
