I served with one of these amazing gents and I've been able to see it all grow from the beginning. Active Heroes has constantly grown and adjusted its mission, to the ever growing needs of Vets and their families. They will continue to do amazing things and I hope one day I get to join the effort!

The first time I heard of ACTIVE HEROES was on January 2017 when my fellow Zumba instructor, fellow veteran, & friend, Rob, invited me to be part of a Zumbathon Charity Event to raise funds for Active Heroes. Once he told me about the organization, I did not hesitate to say YES even if it means driving several hours to get there. As an Air Force Veteran with PTSD from my 5 deployments and my previous career field, I know the effects of PTSD. although each personal have different experiences, I can somehow relate. We need non-profit orgs like Active Heroes. AH is unique because the services offered are not only for the veterans but also for their family. I’ve also been to the retreat in Louisville, KY to tour and get trained as a volunteer. I’ve attended 4 Zumbathon for Active Heroes events, hosted one in Las Vegas in 2017, & hosting another one in Las Vegas on May 25, 2019. THANK YOU, Active Heroes for all you do!!!

I was introduced to Active Heroes almost 4 years ago through a mutual friend. The amount of dedication and loyalty they have to our servicemembers and veterans is unmatched. Their goal of building a large veterans retreat to help veterans and their families cope with the effects of PTSD is brilliant and effective. Instead of just talking about helping veterans, they are taking tangible action. All of their activities are focused on ending veteran suicide, and I hope they continue to expand and gain traction.

Active hero's is one of the most down to earth, transparent and wholesome Charity's I have ever seen. All the folks there have true passion for the mission that they are striving to make a reality. I know that when I donate to active hero's, almost all of my money goes to something truly amazing. 22 to 0, a statement that is both heartbreaking and inspiring. I hope this can be achieved some day and have full faith that active hero's can make a real difference for those who make the ultimate sacrifice.

I have a friend that I was extremely worried about. I wanted to be there for him, but I knew that I did not live through the things he had experienced and did not feel I had the knowledge to fully help him. After talking with some other veterans and doing a internet search I found Active Heroes. The staff work very hard to be everything that is needed for the Heroes that have served our country. I have gotten to know Troy, and he has put his heart and soul into creating something that helps our heroes when they need it. Troy and the whole staff go above and beyond what I ever expected to find. This is such a needed and worthy cause. I am overjoyed that an organization like this exists.

I have been a team leader in Wichita Kansas and have been involved with Active Heroes for 5 years. Troy has helped me personally so we both make Active Heroes and the events I organize better. I like that Active Heroes keeps their finances in clear public view so I know my work and funds are going to help veterans. I would recommend anyone who is willing to help veterans to get involved with Active Heroes.

I had been following Active Heroes events on Facebook back since 2012/2013, I realized this was the charity group I wanted to support. On one of our family vacations, we decided to drive through their town, stop in and pay them a visit. Meeting with Troy and Mareike that day showed me the compassion and care they have for our Military Men and Womem. They never once showed or displayed any high lifestyle of living through the people's donations. Just a great hearted and caring couple. This proved to me they made sure the funds were allocated to the people in need.
One of our family vacations included, joining in at the Family Retreat to work on clearing the property, trimming trees and building tables. While there, we even had the pleasure of doing a kids room and bathroom makeover for a husband and wife that were both in the National Guard. That in itself was great to see the joy it brought my kids, watching the little boys come home to a newly painted and decorated room.
The people I have met with and worked along side of, are all genuine and kind hearted people. On man especially that stood out, he was a disabled Army Vet and working right along side me at the retreat. That young mans name is Brian, he was an amazing young man with joy in his heart and a smile on his face. He too received a home make over himself funded by Active Heroes. When he realized how they helped him and his lovely bride with their new family, he was elated and humbled. He said it was hard to display or show signs of weakness by asking for help. He then realized Active Heroes is the real deal. Since 2013, I have made a number of donations, I have since included any tips from customers along with matching their contribution.
I have no doubt in my mind and heart that Active Heroes will use my donations appropriately for the bettering and well being of our Men and Women of our Armed Forces.
So for that alone, this is where I will always send my donations.

God Bless Active Heroes and their team for all they do.

God Bless the Men and Women of our Armed Forces.

I love my Active Heroes

I have been a part of Active Heroes now for almost a year and it has truly been a great experience! I signed up as a team leader and have held a Ruck March in my community, actually getting ready to have another! I have witnessed so much good come out of just our Ruck March alone, it has really opened the eyes of just how real PTSD and suicide rates are amount our veterans! My husband is an Iraq war veteran and suffers with PTSD, this program has helped him so much by just being active and helping me and meeting new people and also reuniting with some that he served with! Top notch non-profit and I look forward to many years working with them!
