Swim Team for the 2015 SoCal Keg-Tow.

Swim Team for the 2015 SoCal Keg-Tow.

Our Vision

Our vision is to ensure there are no obstacles for our wounded veteran's and active duty warriors that have been injured in conflict. We strive to heighten visibility for our wounded warriors and their journey to adapt to a new life; to enable them all the freedom they had prior to being injured.

Originally a group of individuals that would raise money for various military non-profits, Team: Overwatch formally came together to raise money as an athletic team. Team: Overwatch focuses on building a community that unites Veterans, Active Duty, families and local businesses that can help prevent stopping points in the road to recovery for families or service-members that are recovering from loss or wounds. To this end, we have gathered toys, rucked hundreds of miles, and raised thousands of dollars to educate our communities about PTSD, provide advocacy for programs that help veterans and their families deal with psychological trauma associated with recovery or loss and purchase equipment or property for families.

Why donate to us. We understand that there are many other charities to chose from. Our focus is to form a network beginning in our own community and branching out. There are many different options for care for our military families, many of them small and largely unknown. We not only unite them in a common outlet, but strive to promote them. 

Check out our Achieved page for some of the events we have held!

Support. You can support Team: Overwatch operations by making a purchase on our Merchandise page, making a donation, or by becoming a Sponsored Athlete.

Ok, so how does this work? All merchandise sales sustain Team: Overwatch operational costs. This enables us to do more with monetary and in-kind donations. Our diverse staff is constantly seeking new ways to connect with the various military communities and programs. Through this partnership, we are able to promote the BEST OPTIONS FOR THE FAMILY, and offer our own options to other groups.
