THE NQC MISSION
The mission of the Never Quit Challenge is a land and nautical centered fundraising event supporting American Veterans and their families with community participation that benefits select notable charities.
The Never Quit Ethos drives our mission. The Never Quit Challenge is based both on land and water moving a team of 30 members with boats, and equipment safely across the USA. These veterans will be on 6 select Teams commemorating KIA (Killed In Action) special operations warriors with each team hosting boat dedications in their honor. Their NQC journey covers 1,600 miles of open ocean waters commencing on September 6th, 2013 in Key West Florida, with several overnight checkpoints and various fuel stations en route to New York City, NY. The NQC Teams arrive in NYC on the anniversary of the terrorist attacks against American on September 11, 2013.

The Connected Warrior Foundation Mission
We strive to improve the quality of life for wounded veterans by facilitating increased connection to their families, friends, community and the world.
One of the primary efforts of the Connected Warrior Foundation is providing tablet devices to veterans—whether newly-injured or on the path to recovery over an extended period of time—who have suffered severe physical and/or emotional ‘invisible’ wounds (PTSD) during the course of combat on behalf of the United States of America.
The devices delivered by CWF allow the wounded veterans to connect with the outside world and help keep them occupied while they recuperate in the hospital. Over the past year, in partnership with Google, Inc., tablet devices delivered from CWF to veterans at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, San Antonio Military Medical Center, Freedom Station in San Diego, CA and mailed to homes of veterans around the country suffering from PTSD.
