Why we support
“The inspiration for our foundation comes from its namesake. Dedicated to 1stLt Travis Manion, USMC, who made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety of his patrol in 2007, TMF carries on the legacy of selfless service and leadership embodied by Travis and all those who have served, or continue to serve, our nation.” –https://www.travismanion.org/about-us/who-we-are/
Travis Manion was a son, brother, friend, and leader. While attending the United States Naval Academy, founder Aidan Switzer became very familiar with the Travis Manion story. Over his four years in Annapolis, Aidan participated in various TMF sponsored events from local community clean-ups, to the well known 9/11 Heroes Run. It is those experiences and the story of those who made sacrifices like Travis, that inspired Aidan to become an officer in the United States Marine Corps. The Foundation is committed to providing support for our nation’s veterans and active duty service members. By providing support to veterans and their families, TMF is empowering veterans to change their communities for the better so that future generations may benefit from the brave sacrifices of our men and women in uniform. Please contact us to see how you can get directly involved in the Travis Manion Foundation mission!
As a commitment to their mission, a portion of the profits from each eFoil lesson will be donated to TMF. Additionally, all proceeds from Devil Ray Water Sports merchandise that proudly displays TMF’s logo will also be donated to their cause!
