UPDATE ON HEROES OF TOMORROW NFP STATUS:
(no longer a 501c3)
We have decided NOT to take donations any longer. We actually work with the facility that allows Heroes of Tomorrow to train for FREE and we in return raise money for them. (Severna Park Community Center) They are a non-profit and any money goes directly to them NOT THROUGH Heroes of Tomorrow now.
We do this fundraising with Spec Ops Triathlon and Monster Mash Races and Tactical Fitness Conferences.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU? Well – we are still a brand name, legal trademark, but we are not a company. We do not handle money at all. You will NEVER be approached by us to help us raise money for Heroes of Tomorrow. We now raise money for the non-profits that support us directly. So any tax deductible donation should go to the Severna Park Community Center and you can support the Heroes of Tomorrow still.
Through this process we have discovered that we need TRAINERS to donate TIME – not people to donate money. So really we are just a method for you to get linked up to trainers who we know and trust to offer you free / reduced priced services to people who seek assistance in preparing for military, police, and fire fighting professions.
Heroes of Tomorrow is an army of veterans and other experts who donate their time and share their experiences to prepare Americans who have made the heroic choice to serve our country and communities. Heroes of Tomorrow volunteers provide FREE group training and information that will enable these prospective candidates to excel in military, law enforcement, public safety, and fire fighter training.
Over the past ten years, Heroes of Tomorrow has prepared more than 30,000 Americans to serve their country with free fitness training.
Your donation to the Community Center that directly supports us will help increase awareness of the program, reaching more Americans who want to serve our country. Donations will also provide updated training equipment and programs to community training facilities.
With proper preparation, candidates will be strong enough to compete – not merely survive training.
Why do we do this?
Because of lifestyle changes and decreased funding for physical education programs, America’s talent pool for physically demanding professions has declined. As a result, more and more men and women are overweight and fail to meet the standards for military or public safety service. Heroes of Tomorrow simplifies the process of losing weight and getting fit to serve through education and training programs taught by our skilled group of instructors.
Heroes of Tomorrow was founded by Stew Smith, CSCS. Stew is a graduate of the U. S. Naval Academy, a former Navy SEAL, and an internationally acclaimed fitness author and speaker. Since 2001, Stew has personally donated more than 5000 hours “preparing Americans to serve” in public service careers at the Heroes of Tomorrow training facility located in Severna Park, Maryland.
