Charting impact

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

Our goal is to use BASE jumping events to fundraise and increase advocacy for durable long-term and short-term solutions for those suffering from traumatic brain injuries. Long-term solutions include funding research programs in areas of promise that will develop diagnostics and therapeutics for traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Short-term solutions are to connect veterans suffering from TBIs or military sexual trauma (MST) to plant medicine experiences that have a track record of success in producing lasting healthy outcomes for those who experience them in a controlled and healing setting.

Maintain three BASE jumping events spread throughout the year with wide geographical coverage. Around these events, we will host formal speaking engagements that will connect thought leaders in brain health to those who might otherwise find BASE jumping or thought leaders inaccessible. This will draw in durable sponsors who see the value in our approach to fundraising and who can cover the operational costs so that we can put every single dime we raise in small donations to work in developing long and short-term solutions for those suffering from traumatic brain injuries.
