wounded warriors
Bravely Battling Beyond
injury or illness.
Because of the brave,
we are still the
land of the free!

As of January 2023, we are taken a tactical pause...but for a great reason; the AFW2 program has been cleared to receive corporate sponsorships for the warriors. That means they do not currently need our support. We are figuring out how we can help and support the warriors in other ways, but since we cannot fulfill our stated mission, we are not taking donations at this time. Shelley, Hippo, and I want to thank everyone who supported the warriors through your generous donations to our nonprofit for all of these years! 

Beyond Brave is a nonprofit created to send Permanently Disabled Retired Wounded Warriors and their Caregivers to Air Force Rehabilitative and Adaptive Sports Camps. We also provide financial assistance to wounded warriors and their families while they recover from injuries and/or illness. During this incredibly difficult time, the warriors, along with their families, face inconceivable hardships. They confront physical injury, numerous surgeries, pain and/or crippling illnesses. They deal with emotional scars that plague them every moment of every day. We also added a new member to our Beyond Brave family, Hippo. He is a service dog who is trained for PTSD & anxiety. He will provide comfort at camps, introduce Warriors to service animals, and also visit Veteran facilities with us.

"Warrior Crack"



We have been closely involved with Air Force Wounded Warriors (AFW2) Adaptive and Rehabilitative Sports Camps since 2013. We pinch ourselves on a regular basis because we are constantly humbled and blessed in so many ways to have the opportunity to be part of this wonderful, life-changing program. To be part of so many warriors journey to recovery is wonderful beyond words. We almost feel guilty because we enjoy helping so is like a fix (or as we like to say....Warrior Crack). A staff member and I were trying to describe this awesome feeling. We determined that it was the pure and simple fact that we are witnesses to miracles occurring every minute, of every hour, of every day. The courage to come, the courage to try, the courage to be beyond brave! Stay tuned for more miracles to come!
