How to contribute to

TBI Freedom!

Most everyone has their favorite charities. For our Pickleball community, fundraising efforts have been directed toward Craig Hospital’s Operation TBI Freedom, a program that helps our veterans who suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The Pickleball for Heroes Tournament has raised two-hundred-seventeen-thousand dollars over four years, with one-hundred percent going to support Operation TBI Freedom. We have set a goal of a million dollars for Operation TBI, and recently found an easy and innovative way to meet that goal in addition to the Pickleball for Heroes Tournament. AmazonSmile is a program that allows purchasers of the millions of Amazon products to ensure that a percentage (0.5%) of their purchase directly to Operation TBI Freedom in the name of the pickleball community. The steps are painless, and the impact potentially huge. Please consider this wonderful opportunity!
