Be Prepared to Face Anything

When Cedar Coleman found his mother unconscious after crashing her mountain bike high in the Wasatch Mountains, raw panic set in. With no first-aid training and no medical help for miles, Coleman felt vulnerable, helpless — but also determined to keep himself and anyone else from ever experiencing that fear. That’s why, after becoming a wilderness first responder, Coleman founded Built Tough in the Wasatch, a nonprofit organization committed to creating better-prepared adventurers through innovative wilderness first-aid education and hands-on instruction. “My goal is to make wilderness first aid as accessible as possible,” Coleman said. “My hope is that everyone would consider taking this workshop because the more prepared individuals there are in our mountains and on our campus, the better off we all are.” More at builttoughinthewasatch.com
