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 the participants with physical therapy, performance training, nutritional support, and massage therapy through EXOS.

When an Eagle Fund participant enters the program Day 1, they receive a movement assessment and evaluation by the physical therapy team to determine their plan of care as well as safe and specific activity levels.  The Performance Specialists take that information and customize/personalize each individual’s movement skills and strength training per their particular needs and/or demands. Participants will also receive individual consultation with the Registered Dieticians to develop a customized plan in line with their own specific goals and needs. Participants typically average around 4 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.
