WOUNDED WARRIORS HAVE FAMILIES TOO

Enriching Lives of the Entire Family

Homosassa, FL   |  WWHFT.ORG

Mission

We are a Nonprofit organization determined to support the unseen and unsung HEROES of the military's Wounded, Injured and Ill- the FAMILIES - they have spent days, weeks and in some cases years next to hospital beds. While their loved one that wears a uniform is thanked for their service - these families have failed to receive the recognition and just as importantly - the Camaraderie that Physically Challenging Events brings.

Our goal is to bring Veterans and Families together by completing physically demanding events - which has proven to improve relationships.

Veteran Families to the Memorial Bataan Death March

The Bataan Memorial Death March is a challenging march through the high desert terrain of the White Sands Missile Range. The memorial march is conducted in honor of the heroic service members who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II, sacrificing their freedom, health, and, in many cases, their very lives.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We strive to bring military and first responder families closer - healing the divide caused by deployments, hospitalizations, and the unpredictability of the professions

WWHFT has partnered with Veterans and Their Families - Denmark to expand our offerings of EXTREME events!

We sponsor Teams to Participate in the

Bataan Memorial Death March (26.2 miles) at White Sands, New Mexico

Army Ten Miler, Washington, D.C.

Cateran YOMP (24 - 54 miles) in Scotland

5 Day Marathon (26.2 miles), Bornholm, Denmark

Marine Corps Marathon (26.2 miles), Washington, D.C.

Our Board is laying the groundwork to provide a working Dude Ranch event in 2019.

WWHFT has been fielding teams for the Bataan Memorial Death March, Army Ten Miler, Cateran YOMP and the Marine Corps Marathon for 2-3 years.
Each year, we have improved the processes and increased the number of participants.
We remain indebted to our amazing network of sponsors and donors!

WWHFT has supported over 240 wounded, injured or ill military/ veterans and their family members.

We are now starting a Mentorship program for past participants to support incoming families - Guardian Angels.

Our Guardian Angels will be matched with families or individuals that are selected to participate in one of the events - to coach, mentor and counsel the new participants.

The Guardian Angels will receive specialized training to support and coach another family - a duty we don't take lightly.

We know that service to others is innate to military and first responders - this gives a new sense of purpose for our Guardian Angels.
