WWIA: Honor. Connect. Heal.

Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation (WWIA) is a national 501(c)(3) public charity that devotes all of its energy and resources to supporting the men and women wounded in combat who were awarded the Purple Heart medal. WWIA supports these phenomenal Heroes by providing them with the opportunity to participate in world-class outdoor sporting activities at no cost to them. We do this as a means to recognize and honor their sacrifice, encourage independence and connections with communities, and promote healing and wellness through camaraderie and a shared passion for the outdoors.

We accomplish our mission by:

  • Providing tailored, world-class outdoor sporting activities in small groups over a period of 2 to 3 days, promoting a deeper bond and peer-to-peer interaction.
  • Encouraging healing through the power of the great outdoors.
  • Providing a proven and certified Purple Heart Associate on every event as a mentor and guide for their fellow combat-wounded veterans. View Purple Heart Associates
  • Organizing regional and local community involvement and participation in WWIA-sponsored outdoor sporting events to build long-lasting relationships between American Heroes and American Sportsmen and women.
