What We Do

We help young people with life-threatening illnesses and disabilities have fun through memorable trips. Our organization also takes veterans with combat-related injuries to group and sporting events.

Hunting and Fishing Trips for the Youngsters

We offer hunting and fishing adventures to young people suffering from major illness and disabilities.

How We Started

Through the leadership of Brian Solum, our organization has grown to eight chapters across six states. We have two branches Minnesota and one each in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nevada, Florida, and Washington with plans for adding new chapters.
