22 Jumps: January 30th, 2021, Camelback Mountain, AZ
Parachuting with Purpose: Veterans BASE jumped to raise funds for CVB’s TBI research.
Marine Veterans Tristan Wimmer and Adam Krum, along with their friend Adam Ghannoum, succeeded in their mission to BASE jump 22 times in a single day from Arizona’s Camelback Mountain on January 30th, 2021, and raise more than $22,000 in honor of the 22 Veterans and service members who lose their battle to suicide each day.
Tristan has dedicated his time and efforts to 22 Jumps in honor of his brother who took his own life after sustaining a TBI in Iraq while serving in the United States Marine Corps. TBI is a major risk factor for suicide. 22 Jumps supports CVB’s research, with the goal of making TBI more detectable and treatable.
