What We Do
For Those Who Would seeks to honor and help individuals who are resilient despite limitations of injury or disease.
We work with athletes and others within the obstacle, adventure, and endurance racing communities to honor and provide healthcare support to those who would love to participate in our sports if they were physically able. Our first featured program was in honor of Aaron Reding, who inspired the creation of For Those Who Would. Despite suffering from ALS for over 10 years, Aaron and his wife Ashley, still run a large farming operation in central Kentucky. Many generous individuals donated funds to purchase a robotic, mobility seat for Aaron’s farm truck, which will permit him to transfer himself to and from the farm truck without assistance.
In collaboration with Chicked Nation, For Those Who Would provided the platform to support fellow obstacle racer, Kristen Sifer in her recovery from breast cancer. We are extremely happy to report that she has recovered from her treatments and completed her second Spartan Trifecta earlier in the year.
Our latest campaign assisted Zack Paben by covering costs of some critical healthcare tests and procedures necessary for management of severe pancreatitis issues.
You can help us jumpstart our next campaign by donating to our general healthcare fund.
