Made up of more than 1,600 service members who qualify for our assistance, Team Semper Fi is the heart and inspiration of the Semper Fi Fund's Peter Murphy Semper Fi Fund Sports Program, and is an extension of the assistance we provide.
The idea for Team Semper Fi was inspired by those wounded Marines and Sailors, both visible and invisible wounds, who refused to let their challenges prevent them from competing in athletic events, and whose drive and determination was inspirational to us all.
The team is made up of servicemen and women who have overcome significant challenges in their service to our country, and have embraced the fighting, athletic spirit on their road to recovery. Service members dealing with life changing injuries, traumatic brain injury, post traumatic stress, or critical illness are encouraged to join Team Semper Fi and Team America's Fund. They are an inspiration to us all but, more importantly, they are an inspiration to their fellow service members who are also traveling down the road to recovery.
We provide our team with coaches, specialized sporting equipment, entry fees, and travel expenses to athletic events. Team members are also given the opportunity to receive high-level training from former and current Olympic and Paralympic athletes through a partnership with the U.S. Paralympics!
