Donate to Support our Veterans
About Heroes Hunt
Football great and avid hunter, Joe Thomas, has teamed up with LEEK Hunting & Mountain Preserve to kick-off a fundraising campaign with a goal of raising $100,000 to support our nation’s veterans!
LEEK, an award-winning, 501c3 facility will use 100-percent of the money raised from the Heroes Hunt campaign to expand its Dunham Hall facility.
To jump start the campaign, Polaris donated the first $25,000 along with three new 2019 RANGER CREW® 1000 vehicles. One of the vehicles was retrofitted with hand paddles to assist disabled veterans and allow them to participate in hunts on the property regardless of their current physical status.
LEEK is currently in Phase 1 of a 3-Phase program to build Dunham Hall which provides lodging and conference rooms for wounded warriors and their families to recover. Dunham Hall is named after Jason Dunham who was a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps and was awarded the Medal of Honor for actions while serving during the Iraq War.
LEEK’s Heroes Hunt
LEEK uses hunting, fishing, and outdoor recreation as a means of recovery for veterans and their families regardless of their current physical limitations. Utilizing RANGER vehicles to get around the 400 acres of property, the Heroes Hunt included wounded veterans, representing the U.S. Army and Marine Corps branches, who participated in six hunts over three days.
During the 11-seasons that LEEK has been in operation they have hosted nearly 300 wounded and injured veterans from every branch of the U.S. military. LEEK is a non-profit organization, relying 100-percent on volunteers. More than 1,000 volunteers have supported LEEKs mission throughout the 11 seasons. LEEK believes in encouraging our nations wounded heroes to focus on their abilities, without compromising their current physical limitations. LEEK was founded by U.S. Army veteran Ed Fisher, who served 27-years. Ed created LEEK as a community for veterans and their families, and remains committed to serving all veterans.
“Our goal is to ensure their sacrifices are never forgotten and provide a therapeutic environment for healing with their fellow servicemen and servicewomen,” said Ed.
