Our Military Kids is a nonprofit organization that supports children, ages five through 12th grade, of deployed National Guard and Reserve service members and children of wounded warriors from all service branches. Grants pay for participation in activities that help children cope with stress and anxiety while their parents are recovering or absent.
United Heroes League actively works to ensure that children of military members are afforded every opportunity to participate in sports. They have provided more than $3 million worth of free sports equipment, game tickets, cash grants and summer camps to military families across the United States and Canada. United Heroes League wants to ensure that all five million military kids are able to develop critical life skills through sports. This intense focus on youth development and serving the families of military service members motivates United Heroes League to keep its programs focused. This focus has also inspired more than 90 professional athletes and more than 30 sports franchises to lend their names and support to United Heroes League.
