Our mission is to provide veterans who have been severely injured during the Global War on Terrorism with the tools, therapies and guidance that they are otherwise not receiving. These items include, but are not limited to robotic wheelchairs, specialized cycles and unfunded physical therapy equipment. Our grants would not be possible without the generosity of organizations like the Lakeway Patriot Fund, the Military Order of the Purple Heart Foundation and the support of the many individual donors who donate on their own accord. Ancillary to this core mission we have found that events such as the Lt Dan Ride, and the Schlumberger Cycling Club’s annual Wallis Ride provide an enormous therapeutic value for our severely injured by breaking down barriers between the able bodied and disabled veterans communities. In the past 2 1/2 years since its inception, with no paid staff, the Independence Fund has raised and distributed nearly $750,000 in goods and services to deserving veterans and their caregivers.
