The Foundation was founded in 2010 by Max and Kelly Fregoso to support soldiers, veterans and military families in coping with combat, deployment and adjusting to coming home. Their walk with the Lord and love of the Great Outdoors has provided them with the passion, the partnerships, the people, the vision, the leadership, and the plan to connect soldiers, veterans and military families with the great healing power and natural blessings of nature. The Fregoso Foundation partners expert outdoorsmen and outfitters with the brave men, woman and their families who have sacrificed so much for us and provides them with the opportunity to enjoy the serenity and challenge of outdoor activities. Based on the physical, emotional, and social interests of participants, and recognizing developmental principles, the Fregoso Outdoor Foundation offers diversified activities that help gain self-confidence and self-esteem, re-enforce active lifestyles, increase self-reliance; and adopt constructive new hobbies.
