WHAT IS FOAR FROM HOME?
FOAR FROM HOME is an ocean row team composed of four veterans from Fernandina Beach, Florida. Each rower served in different branches of the Military Service: Army, Navy, Air Forces and Marines. In December 2021, these foar ordinary guys will take part in an extraordinary event and row across the Atlantic Ocean from the Canary Islands to Antigua to raise awareness and donations toward PTSD and Veteran Suicide.
With an average of 22 veterans taking their lives each day, the team is deeply driven to help make a change in the high rate of veteran suicide and issues associated with Veteran PTSD.
However, the team doesn't want to charge at this journey alone and is asking their hometown of Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, Nassau County and anyone else committed to the cause to team up with FOAR FROM HOME and come with them on this extraordinary journey and campaign to affect Veteran change.
A premier event in ocean rowing — a challenge that will take FOAR FROM HOME and our community support team, sponsors and donors more than 3,000 miles west from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands to Nelson's Dockyard English Harbor, Antigua.
The challenge begins in early December 2021, with 30-40 row teams participating from around the world. The race structure brings together an environment where teams from across the globe gather in the race village of San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands. The atmosphere is electric and dynamic as people help each other prepare for the challenge of the mighty Atlantic Ocean. All with the same objective — to take on the unique experience of crossing an ocean in a rowing boat.
It Is Estimated That More Than 22 Veterans Die By Suicide Every Day
When leaving the United States Military Service, our US Veterans 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 issues, cognitive issues, and issues from PTSD.
FOAR FROM HOME wants to take a bite out of the high suicide rate and run a significant awareness and donation campaign that will raise $500,000, and make a significant contribution for 'Now Veteran Need.' FOAR FROM HOME wants to change the life of a Veteran today not tomorrow.
