helping heroes find their way
SKIING, HIKING, CLIMBING, CYCLING. OUTDOOR ADVENTURES! AND MUCH MORE!
Azimuth Check Foundation of New England (ACFNE) helps active military (including the Reserve & the National Guard), veterans, and first responders with disabilities by providing challenging year-round athletic activities. We directly sponsor and lend our support to a number of events throughout the Northern New England region. All of the events provide an opportunity to show support for and raise money to support our warriors and their families. Click here to learn more about hosting an event to benefit the Foundation.
Azimuth check – verification of one’s current location and environment and calculation of the route to an objective or goal.
“There are those who speak about you who say, he lost an arm, he lost a leg, she lost her sight. I object. You gave your arm, you gave your leg, you gave your sight, as gifts to your nation so that we might live in freedom. Thank you. And to your families, families of the fallen, and families of the wounded, you’ve sacrificed in ways that those of us who have not walked in your shoes, can only imagine.”General Peter M. Pace
SUPPORTING OUR SOLDIERS IN NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND AND BEYOND
Comprised of five founding board members, of whom four are veterans and the fifth a concerned physician and father of an Army Ranger, we have long been aware of a gap in desperately needed wellness programs for veterans and first responders with disabilities in Northern New England. ACFNE seeks to fill that gap by providing challenging year-round athletic activities. It is our core belief that participation in these activities builds self-esteem and accomplishment and that the camaraderie and inclusion of family and friends promotes wellness, helping our heroes to find their way.
ACFNE intends to accomplish this by providing athletic and wellness programs in collaboration with other established organizations in Northern New England. The Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC), which has a longstanding history of effective programs for civilian clients with disabilities is one such partner. Taking advantage of their experience and success, we will be able to provide immediate support to our target community, foregoing the lengthy and expensive task of building in-house expertise. At the present time, we are a registered 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization and are planning our first event for Fall 2018.
