You can sponsor a specific mile of your choosing.

Our Why

Veterans, both men and women, face many challenges and issues while transitioning back into civilian life. Unfortunately, many Veterans struggle with identity issues, financial problems, housing accessibility, cognitive disorders and impacts from PTSD. All of these factors can lead to suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts by those who have served.

  • FOAR FROM HOME is using our platform and community to raise awareness and make an impact on these veteran PTSD and suicide statistics. We have identified two North Florida organizations who are making a discernible impact in these areas.
  • FOAR FROM HOME has placed a $150,000 down payment toward the sponsorship of a 64-dog mega kennel at K9’s For Warriors.
  • FOAR FROM HOME has donated $50,000 to Cross The Line Foundation, to start a Vocational or College Endowment to assist Veterans and their families during job, career or life transitions.
  • FOAR FROM HOME is bringing awareness to the work and mission of The Fire Watch, Florida’s fight to end veteran suicide. They are uniting War Fighters and allies to swiftly activate local assets, stand watch, and build a life-saving network.
  • FOAR FROM HOME is changing the life of Veterans today, not tomorrow.


We reached our initial goal of $500,000. Our new goal of $730,000 will provide a mega kennel for K9's for Warriors!

Let's Keep Going!

We have extended the goal once again to $730,000. This will purchase a new mega kennel at K9's for Warriors. We believe working together we can make this happen. All money raised from this point on will go towards the mega kennel.


The World's Toughest Row–3,000 Miles Across the Atlantic Ocean

Not everyone just jumps in a boat and rows an ocean, but, in December 2021, our four US Veterans (Army/Navy/Air Force/Marine) from Fernandina Beach, Florida will cast off from the shore of La Gomera in the Canary Islands, Spain, and row unsupported across 3,000 miles of the Atlantic Ocean to Antigua. The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge will be the ultimate journey of their lives. Come and be a part of the World’s Toughest Row and their campaign to defeat Veteran Suicide and PTSD.
