M43 Podcast EP004: Generation Wild

TW M43 Podcast Image.png

Brian and Kevon Bjornson are native Idahoans and the co-founders of Generation Wild.  As young boys, they experienced the outdoors with their father who taught them the simple pleasures to be found while hiking, camping and fly fishing.  As they got older, Brian and Kevon grew in their appreciation for the outdoors and wanted to share their experience with the youth here in the Treasure Valley.  After mentoring youth through the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program, Brian and Kevon decided to embark upon creating their own youth mentorship program and Generation Wild was formed.

Generation Wild is a 501c3 non-profit that leverages the outdoors and the natural beauty of Idaho to make a positive impact on the lives of our younger generation.  Through fly fishing, hiking, and spending time outdoors they strive to develop friendships, share their passion for the outdoors, teach life-long skills, and create leaders for the future. Their goal is to help the younger generation find direction in their lives through spending time in solitude.

Mission43 is looking forward to working with Generation Wild in the future. Learn more about Generation Wild and connect with them to get invovled:

M43 Podcast EP003: Spencer Milo From The Marcus Institute For Brain Health

TW M43 Podcast Image.png

Spencer Milo is the Director of Veteran Programs at the Marcus Institute for Brain Health (MIBH) in Denver, Colorado. He’s as good as they come and you could say he is over-qualified for his role in this position. He was seriously wounded in both Iraq and Afghanistan, suffering blast injuries that changed his life forever, but now influence his approach to helping other veterans and their families who have experienced similar injuries.

Through an incredible $30 million seed grant from the Marcus Foundation (Bernie Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot), the Marcus Institute for Brain Health was launched in 2016 at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. They exist because we now know that there are clear changes in functioning after brain injury. MIBH fills this critical need with comprehensive and customized care totally free to military families.

Mission43 is proud to work closely with Spencer Milo and the Marcus Institute for Brain Health in connecting those we know who have suffered brain injuries in combat or training. We are confident in saying they are best-in-class for treatment of TBI in the country.
