Miracle of the Mind: Finding Purpose and Joy after Trauma

Miracle of the Mind: Finding Purpose and Joy after Trauma In-Person

Join us for a talk by Matthew Krumwiede, a Purple Heart-decorated veteran, who will speak about the courage it takes to build a meaningful and joyful life. 

Matthew Krumwiede is a medically-retired U.S. Army Sergeant from Pocatello, Idaho.  He was serving in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, in 2012 when he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED), causing the loss of both legs above the knee as well as other severe trauma to his left arm and abdomen. After years of extensive recovery and ongoing medical issues, Matthew now works for Higher Ground helping to show fellow veterans, first responders, and people with disabilities the benefits of outdoor sports.
