What is The Disposable Heroes Project?

More than 32,000 troops have been injured in Iraq and Afghanistan since the War began, and it is estimated that as many as 30 percent of soldiers returning home from war develop physical or mental ailments.

The mission of The Disposable Heroes Project is to recognize, honor, and support our Wounded, Fallen, and Active Duty Heroes. The DHP serves the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps, and their families. Their efforts are focused in the following three areas: The Funding of monuments and memorials, both virtual and static, Educational Scholarships for school expenses, and Troop Welfare. They aim to ensure our American troops are never without needed assistance. Read more about the DHP HERE

TEAM SFCF Conquers the Quad Dipsea…Again

Congratulations to all the TEAM SFCF members at the Quad Dipsea last weekend!   All 11 athletes who started finished – Josiah, Nick, Dave, Robert, Charles, Alisha, Kerrie, Chris, Pon, Kenso, and Lawrence.






Some noteworthy moments: Josiah beating his time from last year by over an hour; Nick beating his Boston Marathon time by 12 minutes – what?; Kenso going 20 minutes faster this year; and Alisha gutting it out with a messed up IT band. Amazing!
