During the CF Dinner and Silent Auction, the Lecky brothers, Eddy, Anton, Chris and John, announced that they were pledging $10,000 to the CF. The display of generosity had a ripple effect, spurring others to bid generously on auction items and made the evening outcome beyond our expectations! The Lecky Foundation was founded by their late father John Lecky, the larger-than-life sportsman and entrepreneur. Thank you to the Lecky family!
Mikkel Clark reached out to CF after learning about us through SealFit. Mikkel’s father was retired LTC in the Army serving in both Korea and Vietnam. Mikkel’s father suffered from PTS, and passed away in December of 2016. As the one year memorial of his dad’s death approached, Mikkel decided he would do something special in his memory. Mikkel set-up a crowdfunding page, programmed a memorial WOD for his father and ran an event at the CrossFit gym he coaches at part-time. He raised $1800 to benefit two veteran organizations, one of which was the Courage Foundation. What’s more, Mikkel works for Apple Inc. Through Apple’s generous matching donation program, that $900 donation became $2700! HOOYAH Mikkel and Apple Inc.
Dr. Scott Russo, orthopedic surgeon, entrepreneur, athlete and Unbeatable Mind coach-in-training has recently offered Courage Foundation a sponsorship through a company he co-owns with business associates.

The company has offered to donate $1 from the sale of each bar to the Courage Foundation when the promo code “courage” is used at checkout. NutriFuel is Courage Foundation’s first corporate sponsor. Give NutriFuel Bars a try on your runs, rucks and rides, and support Courage Foundation at the same time!
