The mission of the Joggin’ for Frogmen Race Series is to activate communities from around the world to honor the sacrifices of our service members and veterans, and to support the families of our fallen heroes. Our races bring communities together to celebrate the lives of America’s fallen and express our deep gratitude to those still serving.
The Navy SEAL Foundation stands behind all U.S. Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen, Naval Special Warfare support personnel, and their spouses and children. The Foundation coordinates closely with NSW commands to support critical needs of active-duty operators while also providing resources for NSW veterans. Their work is focused on five key areas that assist veterans of NSW, active-duty service members and their families: Educational Opportunities, Warrior Support and Family Services, Legacy Preservation, Tragedy Assistance and Survivor Support.
Established to honor the 31 Americans killed in action in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011, The 31Heroes Project exists to support the families of all fallen military heroes. Funds raised from the “31 Heroes” workouts—which are organized and hosted by athletes around the country—are split equally among our partnering organizations: Snowball Express and the Travis Manion Foundation
’s Challenge Grants program. These organizations are committed to honoring the fallen and making a difference in the lives of military families who have lost a loved one.
Shortly after the death of 1st Lt. Travis Manion in Iraq on April 29, 2007, the fallen Marine’s mother, the late Janet Manion, founded the Travis Manion Foundation to assist our nation’s veterans and families of the fallen. TMF engages with veterans and families of the fallen in all stages of their personal journeys and offers them unique opportunities to empower them to achieve their goals. TMF believes that the best way to honor the fallen is by challenging the living. TMF challenges veterans and families to lead the “If Not Me, Then Who…” movement and inspire others to continue the service to community and country exemplified by the nation’s fallen heroes.
