Our Why

5Veterans, both men and women, face many challenges and issues while transitioning back into civilian life. Unfortunately, many Veterans struggle with identity issues, financial problems, housing accessibility, cognitive disorders and impacts from PTSD. All of these factors can lead to suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts by those who have served.

  • Team Ohana is using our platform and community to raise awareness and make an impact on these veteran PTSD and suicide statistics. We have identified two North Florida organizations who are making a discernible impact in these areas.
  • Team Ohana has funded a mega kennel at K9s For Warriors  . It will be built in 2022 and will be named COURAGEOUS. Each incremental $25,000 that we raise will sponsor a dog in their life saving program.
  • Team Ohana has donated $50,000 to Cross The Line Foundation, to start a Vocational or College Endowment to assist Veterans and their families during job, career or life transitions.
  • Team Ohana is bringing awareness to the work and mission of The Fire Watch, Florida’s fight to end veteran suicide. They are uniting War Fighters and allies to swiftly activate local assets, stand watch, and build a life-saving network.
  • Team Ohana is changing the life of Veterans today, not tomorrow.


We reached our previous goal. Now we are striving to fill the kennel with dogs and become the top fundraising team in Atlantic Campaigns history.

Let's Keep Going!

We have extended the goal once again to $1,500,000. Each $25,000 increment sponsors a dog to help a veteran in need.

Reaching our goal will make the team the top fundraising team in the Atlantic Campaigns  history.


The World's Toughest Row - 3,000 Miles Across the Atlantic Ocean

Not everyone just jumps in a boat and rows an ocean, but, in December 2021, our four US Veterans (Army/Navy/Air Force/Marine) from Fernandina Beach, Florida will cast off from the shore of La Gomera in the Canary Islands, Spain, and row unsupported across 3,000 miles of the Atlantic Ocean to Antigua. The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge will be the ultimate journey of their lives. Come and be a part of the World’s Toughest Row and their campaign to defeat Veteran Suicide and PTSD.
