Wounded Warrior ProjectWounded Warrior Project (WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers.

Many warriors note a sense of duty to volunteer for the military following these tragic events. With the mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors, WWP is the hand extended to encourage warriors as they adjust to their new normal and achieve new triumphs. Offering a variety of programs and services, WWP is equipped to serve warriors with every type of injury – from the physical to the invisible wounds of war.

Wounded Warrior Project also supports three local groups in Las Vegas. These groups will be fully involved and supported by this event:

R.W.B. Dog Tags R.W.B. Dog Tags  – “Saving Two Lives At A Time” is not just our mission; it’s our passion. Our efforts are focused on both Combat Veterans and the Service Dogs they are partnered with. We accomplish this through training, mentorship, comradery, and socialization.

We strive to have a positive impact on our U.S. Combat Veterans as well as save the lives of homeless animals.By bringing them together we help them forge their bond and give them hope. In pairing rescued dogs with Veterans we create teams that understand each other. They’ve both been through some tough times but keep going – happier together than alone.

All dogs provided by R.W.B. Dog T.A.G.S. are rescued, rehabilitated, and trained.

Forgotten Not GoneThe mission of Forgotten Not Gone is to get suffering veterans physically active and interacting with society.

Forgotten Not Gone is a 501(c)(3) for purpose organization dedicated to helping save veterans and their families from the destruction of suicide.

Through emotional, physical, and spiritual actives sponsored by the organization veterans are encouraged to re-engage with society and are brought out of the isolation that many experience once they return home. 

Nathan Tyler Davis Foundation June 9, 2012 started as a normal day, and ended in the loss of a great young man full of life and joy, who just wanted to help people.

The Nathan Tyler Davis Foundation is going to help that great kid fulfill his dream! Once a year a memorial motorcycle run goes from Las Vegas to Tyler’s grave site in Southern California.

The 4th Annual Nathan Tyler Davis Memorial Motorcycle Ride will be June 18, 2018. 100% of all money raised goes to The Nathan Tyler Davis Scholarship, which was started in 2013 by Tyler’s Family.
