Ruck March - 22 Kilometers

Ruck March
The second annual Ruck March will be held November 7th, 2015. This year's theme will tie into our STOP22 campaign to help raise awareness about the 22 Veterans a day who commit suicide. We are diligently working to help Veterans before they get to this point. Come out and join us and show your support of the men and women who have stood in the gaps to bravely defend our freedoms.

Ride to Heal

Ride to Heal
On September 2, 2016, one of our Veterans is organizing a bicycle ride with 2 other wounded Veterans from the Chicago Area to Irving, Texas. They are taking this 900 mile ride to raise funds to help 2 Veterans receive treatment at Carrick Brain Center. Your donations will make that treatment happen.

Carrick Brain Center

Carrick Brain Center
Defenders of Freedom is proud to partner with Carrick Brain Center in support of Veterans struggling with TBI and PTS. They are innovatively treating the brain pharmaceutically free. Defenders of Freedom has seen firsthand the difference this treatment has made for some of our Veterans. The results from the treatment have been a life changing experience for some of them. Defenders of Freedom will work to help raise awareness about Carrick Brain Center as well as funds to help other Veterans be able to get the treatment. Watch Video

About Defenders of Freedom

Defenders of Freedom is a Non Profit Organization (501c3) that has been faithfully serving the Troops for over 7 years. Sending care packages to the Troops deployed in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Kuwait, along with many other areas, has been the top priority from the beginning. As the war has prolonged, there has been an increasing need of help for the wounded Soldiers as they begin transitioning into their lives at home. Defenders of Freedom has been able to help meet the needs of some of these Soldiers. We also hope to increase the amount of help available to them through DOF. We thank each of our donors and volunteers for the increasing awareness and support of DOF.

Our funds are used to: Send support boxes to our men and women in uniform, Support wounded Soldiers with emergency financial assistance, Support the families of wounded Soldiers, Support the USO at DFW Airport, and more.
