Honor Flight San Diego (HFSD) is a non-profit branch of the nationwide Honor Flight Network which consists of over 130 independent “hubs” across America. HFSD escorts veterans to Washington D.C. to see their memorials using monies donated by individuals, foundations, associations, business owners and corporations who wish to recognize their contributions and thank them for their service and sacrifice to the United States and its citizens.

Top priority for our trips is given to the most senior veterans, currently World War II survivors, and to veterans who are terminally ill.


International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF), formerly known as California Bipolar Foundation, was founded in June 2007 in San Diego, California by four parents with children affected by bipolar disorder. Well aware of the trauma that bipolar disorder causes for consumers and their families, these parents felt compelled to do something constructive to help.

The mission of International Bipolar Foundation is to improve understanding and treatment of bipolar disorder through research; to promote care and support resources for individuals and caregivers; and to erase stigma through education.


The Soldiers Project provides free, confidential, and unlimited mental health services to Post 9/11 Veterans, active duty service members and their loved ones regardless of discharge status, branch of service or deployment. The organization was launched in 2004 by Dr. Judith Broder in Los Angeles, California and has since grown into a national nonprofit, serving the military community in seven states across the country.

The Soldiers Project has a volunteer network of over 500 licensed mental health professionals and has recently launched a clinical internship program to continue providing services in areas they are most needed. All donations raised via this event will go directly to supporting Veterans and military families in the San Diego area.


Team RWB’s sole purpose is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. We define enrichment as creating quality relationships and experiences that contribute to life satisfaction and overall well-being. The concept of enrichment consists of three core components—health, people, and purpose—that comprise a rich life.

We accomplish our mission via our two core programs: our Chapter and Community Program and our Eagle Leadership Development Program. Please support our organization by clicking the link below and learning more about what we do.
