Matthew Vacca, Chair of Children of Fallen Patriots Junior Board, is participating in SEALFIT while raising funds for Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation. The challenge is modeled after the first 50-hours of the notorious Navy Seal Hell Week. The goal of SEALFIT is to move through life without fear, with total confidence in the ability to overcome obstacles and reach any mission, no matter how big or small.

“With how much effort our service men and women put into defending this great country and with how much effort their families at home expend on holding things together through the duration of the long deployments, I wanted to engage in an event that was both military focused while also representing the amount of dedication and work put into our active and reserve members daily life,” explained Matthew.

Matthew grew up in a family with a long line of military service. Sadly, he lost both his parents by the time he was 18-years-old. It is his goal to make sure that every child who has lost a parent to combat related services will be provided the financial support and guidance to navigate their way through their next steps of higher education.

“I thank you from the bottom of my heart for any/all of your generous donations,” remarked Matthew. “It truly means the world to me, the foundation and the families involved.”

Matthew’s efforts will help the growing demands on Fallen Patriots to ensure access to education by college-bound children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. Nearly 20,000 children from all across America are still in need of future assistance. To donate to Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation and support Matthew’s efforts, visit here.
