“EDF, Inc. proudly supports Racing for Heroes as its main philanthropy. Racing for Heroes is a tax deductible 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to empower Veterans through motorsports, health, wellness and employment opportunities.
Racing for Heroes’ Goal
Our Goal is to provide a Team environment, leadership and resources, comparable to that which Veterans had while in the service. By doing so, Racing For Heroes provides the Veteran community, a place to belong, common goals and a shared mission.
There are too many heroes who need a shoulder to cry on, a patient ear to listen and a hug to let them know they are not alone in their daily battle. We provide that space – we know the challenges, because many of us face them too.
We participate in research that is showing the excitement and adrenaline that comes with motor sports racing, also helps Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) by improving neurological and emotional connections that may have been damaged or blown off track by trauma.
The activity and community support, literally helps Veterans feel alive and do better with the challenges they face transitioning to civilian life.
We are an approved 501(c)3 charity who needs your support!
