Even Heros ask for help
(June 6, 2018) Josh Collins exemplified the true essence of a hero by pushing his body to the absolute breaking point; only he did what most prideful-people neglect to do, making him a true unmatched-hero. He asked for help..
On the morning of July 2nd, Team Torrent was notified that Josh hit his emergency help button when he reached his first major conflict. While this obstacle ultimately withdrew him from the Race to Alaska, his own personal race had just began. Operation Torrent still continues as Josh pushes forward to connect even more Veterans than ever before.
Follow our mission to find out what happened and where Josh is headed next. If you’ve been following our live videos, stay tuned! We will be releasing special never-before-seen footage in the documentary.
One Man, a 750 mile race,
in an effort to reconnect
Operation Torrent is one Special Operation Veteran’s journey by Stand-Up Paddleboard across open water, the roughest seas, the harshest storms, and the darkest nights, as the living metaphor for what every Veteran may face after combat and then returning to civilian life. Also, to conquer the challenges of living/coping with the effects of multiple Traumatic Brain Injuries, and Post Traumatic Stress. Operation Torrent is the story of overcoming the often debilitating symptoms, and without the life altering meds, or alcohol that can be just as crippling. This mission will culminate with the first ever successful completion of the 750 mile Race to Alaska (R2AK) by SUP, and along with several extreme distance races in preparation. Regardless of how tough it gets, we are never alone!
