ARGO, foundation team up to help wounded vets resume outdoor activities

The Liberty Run Foundation’s Downrange Outdoor Sports Experience, a nonprofit organization, and extreme-terrain vehicle maker ARGO said on Thursday that they have teamed up to help wounded veterans resume their outdoor activities.

Dave English, president of Downrange Outdoor Sports Experience (DOSE), said the focus is on helping vets live normal lives with their families.

“It’s a real coup for our organization to have secured the support of ARGO as we seek to expand the program and get more of our valued veterans back outdoors to enjoy the activities that they were able to do before they became injured," English said. "Having experimented with numerous off-road vehicles since the program’s commencement, I can honestly say that no machine comes close to matching the capabilities of the ARGO or its ease of operation with disabled servicemen. We’re really looking forward to working with them to develop a dedicated vehicle for disabled personnel and are extremely proud to partner with them on this exciting initiative.”

For its part, ARGO will donate amphibious XTVs for use by participants in DOSE-organized hunting excursions, as well as other items courtesy of its Official ARGO Partner Outfitters.

ARGO officials said a specially designed vehicle for physically challenged ARGO and off-road vehicle enthusiasts will be created as a way to celebrate the newly established partnership.
