The Eagle Fund

Andrews Research & Education Foundation is proud to host The Eagle Fund in Gulf Breeze, FL. This program is very dear to our hearts, as it allows for an opportunity to give care to those who have selflessly sacrificed their lives and wellbeing for our country. Gulf Breeze serves as the home and training platform for many men and women of the armed forces. We collaborate with EXOS Performance Inc. to provide these wounded special operatives the same care we provide our professional athletes. Rehabilitation goals for wounded warriors are to foster a better quality of life and/or return to the front lines.
