The Eagle Fund is a program developed as a partnership with the Andrews Research & Education Foundation (AREF) and EXOS, world leaders in sports medicine and human performance. This program exists for the purpose of supporting active duty wounded or injured members of the Special Operations community. We provide our participants with physical therapy, performance training, nutritional support, and massage therapy through the EXOS Comeback Initiative.

When an Eagle Fund participant enters our program Day 1, they receive an assessment by our physical therapy team to determine their plan of care as well as safe and specific activity levels. Our Performance Specialists take that information and customize each individual’s movement skills and strength training. Participants will also receive individual consultation with our Registered Dieticians to develop a customized plan in line with their own specific goals and needs. Participants typically average around 4-6 weeks in our program with the primary goal to get back to the fight, and at the very least, improve their overall quality of life.

The Eagle Fund is a restricted fund established in AREF, which is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. All donations made to the Eagle Fund are used to directly support our service men and women.
