Charitable Causes

Fitness is the magnet drawing men to F3. Soon, men develop Fellowship bonds through the shared suffering in the gloom. As brothers men seek opportunities to grow their Faith (belief in a power greater than themselves) to lead and improve their communities.

Below are several charitable causes that we support:

Wayside Christian Mission – Providing more than and handout…giving women, men, and families a hand-up!

Support their Tim Moseley, Wayside’s CEO, as he bicycles solo across the US!

PurpleStride – PurpleStride fuels progress. And thanks to those who fundraise for PurpleStride, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is able to continue advancing research, serving more patients and families, and being the leading provider of pancreatic cancer services and information in the world.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer – The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.

Wintergerst Westin – On October 5, 2018 our sweet Carolyn, unexpectedly, went to be with the Lord.  It is a loss that simply cannot be put into words. Carolyn meant the world to so many of us. She was truly a bright light, always smiling and encouraging others to be their best. A great example of the kind of person we all strive to be.

Hope Scarves – Hope Scarves is an international non-profit organization based in Louisville, Ky. We collect scarves and stories of hope from women who have faced cancer and then send them on to others in treatment. We also raise money for translational research because we believe hope comes in many forms, but research is key for improved treatment options and outcomes. Since our founding in 2012 we have grown exponentially and affectionately become known as the “sisterhood of the traveling scarves.” Learn more about donating here.

St. John Center for Homeless Men – Our Mission is to help homeless men address barriers to self-sufficiency and housing so that they may leave homelessness for good.  By providing shelter, social services, supportive housing, and serving as a hub with partner agencies, St. John Center is where homeless men “seek help, find hope, and move home.”

Dare to Care – Our Mission is to lead our community to feed the hungry and conquer the cycle of need.

On Thanksgiving Eve in 1969, nine-year-old Bobby Ellis died of malnutrition in his Louisville home. Our stunned Kentuckiana community took action and created Dare to Care Food Bank, to ensure that no one in our community lacks enough food to live an active, healthy life. Today, Dare to Care partners with nearly 300 local social service agencies, such as food pantries, shelters and emergency kitchens to distribute food to our community. In the past year, Dare to Care and our partners provided 19.9 million meals to our community.
