Clay Hunt Fellowship Program, Cohort 8
Location: Southern Florida
Team Rubicon unites military veterans and first responders, capitalizing on the mission focus and small-team ethos of these groups, to deploy effective disaster relief teams around the world. Marine veteran Clay Hunt served in the infantry alongside Team Rubicon cofounder Jake Wood in both Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2007, Clay was wounded in action by an enemy sniper. Following his service, Clay helped establish Team Rubicon by deploying to Haiti and Chile, before dying by suicide. The Bob Woodruff Foundation is proud to continue our investment in this program, developed in Clay Hunt’s memory, to provide meaningful opportunities to veterans seeking mission and community. This Bob Woodruff Foundation grant marks the foundation’s first investment in a full-time CHFP cohort and provides funds for the training and professional development of 12 Clay Hunt Fellowship Program (CHFP) fellows in Cohort 8. This NFL-BWF Healthy Lifestyles and Creating Community (HLCC) grant will support those CHFP fellows as they rebuild 30 homes impacted by Hurricane Irma in Collier County, Florida.
