Recently, Mighty Oaks Foundation awarded its’ first financial grant to another organization (Soul Survivor Outdoor) to amplify our partnership efforts in the area of spiritual resiliency. Mighty Oaks has already been partnering with Soul Survivor Outdoor (SSO) for the last two years, providing speakers for their programs, but is now excited about expanding the relationship. This partnership is a win-win, as we compliment each other to better serve the Warriors we support. Just like the Mighty Oaks Foundation, Soul Survivor Outdoor is also impacting the world for Christ, one military service member at a time.
3rd Battalion 5th Marines at Camp Pendleton hosted a spiritual resiliency event with band Kutless on February 11, 2017.
Nearly 600 Marines, Sailors, veterans, and their families were treated to food, festivities, and an incredible concert with Kutless. Eight time Afghanistan USMC Force Recon veteran, Chad Robichaux, founder and president of Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs gave a resounding talk on resiliency and how a life of faith can save us from being "stuck on the x;" in the cross airs of destruction. Attendees were riveted to Chad's speech as he discussed real life issues, his struggles coming home from combat, his rise to world champion MMA fighter, to coming to Christ and having his life totally and completely changed forever.
