Erick Poston: The mission and Story Behind Oakley’s Infinite Hero Foundation
For over a decade, our country’s military has been bearing the brunt of seemingly endless wars. Many of those who honorably serve are returning home with physical injuries that impact their lives, or emotional wounds that make it difficult for them to move forward. Too many do not return at all, leaving grieving families behind to carry that loss forever.
America is stepping forward to serve our veterans. Over 46,000 military-focused nonprofits exist today. So when Oakley, Inc, decided to do its part to give back, it took another path.
Most people know of Oakley as a company that produces elite sports performance equipment and lifestyle pieces. But what Oakley is just as committed to is supporting the military community. In this episode. Oakley’s Director of its Military/Government program, Erick Poston, talks about Oakley’s Infinite Hero Foundation.
The Infinite Hero Foundation combats the most difficult front-line issues – mental and physical – facing military heroes and their families. It connects our military, veterans and military family members with innovative and effective treatment programs for service related injuries by supporting existing nonprofits doing that work. To date, the Infinite Hero Foundation has raised well over 4 million dollars to donate towards approved nonprofits. Listen in as Erick shares the mission and story of the Infinite Hero Foundation.
