Causes: Military & Veterans Organizations, Veterans

Mission: We serve the Austin area community of veterans with combat related disabilities and their families by funding the cost of gym memberships for three months to promote and alternative, healthy method of coping with the symptoms of PTSD and other combat stress disorders

Results: 501c3 was approved Oct 15th. Currently we have our first vet with a gym membership to Pure Austin Fitness. My goal is to service 1,000 people in a year. This is a very high goal which will require a lot of funding. As a Vet myself I understand how hard the first 5 years being out of the military are. With suicide rates amongst veterans at an alarming rate, you can understand my need to service my brothers and sisters in arms. Thank you
