4.15 Strong Fund

 

4.15 Strong Fund

In 2013, the Semper Fi Fund began assisting survivors of the Boston Marathon bombings. Injured service members of the Fund felt compelled to be at the bedside of the survivors to provide mentorship and let them know that there is life beyond their injuries. To strengthen the bonds developed between the survivors and their mentors, the Semper Fi Fund holds an annual reunion of survivors, service members, doctors, nurses and police officers who all experienced that bombing together.

In addition to the reunion dinner, the Semper Fi Fund has provided direct assistance for service dogs, adaptive equipment and other support to the Boston survivors — all of this assistance comes solely from donors specifically restricting their donations to the survivors of the bombing. True to our name, Semper Fi meaning “always faithful,” we have made a commitment to the Boston survivors to always be at their side.

To further this effort, the Semper Fi Fund is hosting the 4.15 Strong Fund through our America’s Fund program and will be accepting funds that will be used to continue to assist survivors of the Boston bombings.
