Wounded Wear's mission is to raise the national awareness of the sacrifice of wounded warriors, their families, and the families of fallen service members. In support of this mission, Wounded Wear facilitates opportunities for those who have sacrificed so much. Wounded Wear has hosted five "Jumping for a Purpose" events at Skydive Suffolk. This is an empowerment event held for wounded warriors to go skydiving while enjoying local musicians, food, and beverages. This event was built around Wounded Wear's slogan of "Helping Warriors Rediscover the Hero Within" and is geared towards assisting wounded veterans in recognizing that despite their injuries the only limitations they have in their new life in the ones they place on themselves. "Jumping for a Purpose" also presents an opportunity for the community to support these American heroes through sharing in the experience.
This fundraising effort will provide preliminary planning support funds for "Jump for a Purpose 6" to be held in 2015. Help us make "J4AP6" the biggest year yet.
