Since its inception in 2011, Infinite Hero Foundation (IHF) has provided $1.3 million in charitable grants to eight military non-profit organizations working to address the most critical mental and physical challenges facing veterans and their families. With the support of founding corporate partner, Oakley, IHF continually seeks like-minded thinkers to drive innovation and fund “best in class” pilot programs for mental and physical recovery.
In 2013, IHF granted Airpower Foundation funding to provide Chief Warrant Officer 5 (Ret.) Gary Linfoot with an Ekso Bionics exoskeleton suit for personal use, making him the first military veteran to receive one for in-home use. Ekso Bionics makes a wearable exoskeleton that enables individuals with paralysis to stand and walk again. Linfoot’s daily use of the exoskeleton suit is helping to collect critical data and foster awareness of this breakthrough technology.
Help Infinite Hero Foundation and Air Power Foundation raise $150,000 for the Dallas Veterans Affairs Medical Center’s first exoskeleton that will aid in the rehabilitation experience of hundreds of wounded warriors.
