What is Route for the Brave?

The Route for the Brave – Walk Across America is a fundraising event happening April 2016 through August 2016,  in support of Helping Hands for Freedom’s effort to build a retreat house for military members and their families who have endured multiple deployments, been wounded, or who have died in the line of duty.

What is Helping Hands for Freedom?

Helping Hands for Freedom has a primary mission of supporting the surviving spouse and children of a veteran who doesn’t return from the conflict. It can take months for a family to receive the death benefit and often this also results in a relocation from base housing. HHFF steps in to help with basic expenses during their time of transition. We assist those severely wounded who need equipment or housing modifications as they adjust to new life circumstances. We also help the children with life enrichment programs, mentorship, and counseling.


Helping Hands for Freedom is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that supports military children & families facing injury, loss, and multiple deployments. You can learn more about us at
