From Zane at Destin Ultra
"Since 2011 we have provided the best of experiences for our athletes. From the moment you arrive at check in, through the catered aid stations, until you sit down with a cold drink at the hot tub to soak your weary legs, we strive to provide each runner with the most perfect race experience possible. We do this because all of our runners, from first to last, military or civilian, become part of our special operations family on this weekend.
Each year our family of runners raise thousands of dollars to educate the children of our fallen special operations brothers and sisters. This mission is personal for me. As your race director I also take the mission of helping you achieve all your goals personally. I invite you to enjoy our video and then register to become part of our growing family. -Zane, RD"

SOWF gave me the opportunity that my dad would have wanted me to have.
SOWF provided me with the tools to be successful, both in school and in life. They gave me the opportunity to intern with them, which was a learning experience that helped me in many ways. They are an organization that I trust and believe in wholeheartedly. I believe the staff and volunteers of SOWF truly care about each child, and they make it their mission to help them in any way they can.Kaylee Henry Read More
SOWF has been there since day one of my associate degree.
They have always made sure I got what I needed for my living expenses as well as my semester expenses. They not only have given me financial stability when I needed it the most, but also moral and emotional support. If it wasn’t for SOWF I wouldn’t be the professional teacher that I am today. For every success that I made and continue to make in my life, SOWF will be there at the top of the list for all of the thanks and recognition that they deserve for helping me carve my future.Steven Schmauss Read More
I cannot begin to express my gratitude,
knowing throughout the college admissions process, that the financial burden of college was no longer on our family. I am forever thankful for all the incredible things SOWF does for military personnel and their families. I am proud to be attending my dream school, the University of Chicago, because of all the Foundation does to honor those who have given their lives.Forrest Haydon Read More
