For nearly 20 years, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund has remained steadfast in our commitment toward serving our nation’s military personnel. Our organization focuses on supporting those afflicted by the detriments of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress (PTS), which may result from combat experience or injury. These conditions can have longstanding consequences in service member’s lives; impairing their ability to work, communicate with others, and accomplish everyday tasks. Early recognition and diagnosis of these conditions are essential to ensure that military personnel receive the proper attention and care they deserve, and our efforts have gone a long way to support this.
Since 2000, IFHF has raised millions for families who lost members to war; built state-of-the-art research and rehabilitation facilities; and established a network of treatment and diagnosis centers across military bases all over the country. Funding for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund has facilitated the breadth of 8 Intrepid Spirit Centers, which provide comprehensive treatment and individualized evaluations for service members suffering the effects of TBI and PTS – and the impact is clear. After receiving treatment, over 90% of service members report that they are able to cope with the full rigors of military life.
However, there is still much more we can do. The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund plans to build 2 additional Intrepid Spirit Centers but we need your help to make these plans a reality. One great way to support the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is through hosting your own fundraising event. Technology has made setting up a fundraising event online easier than ever, and you can do it all from the convenience of your mobile phone. Any activity that you would normally take part in with friends, family, or community, can be turned into a theme for your fundraiser. Whether it be a charitable bowling competition, grill out, or wine tasting night, simply ask guests to contribute $5-10 for their participation and donate the proceeds to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
