Andy Wirth, the president and CEO of Squaw Valley is on a mission to both raise much-needed funds and awareness to help out a cause dear to his heart: the Navy Seals Foundation. So what’s the story behind Wirth and the Navy Seals Foundation?

One October day a few years ago Wirth was skydiving under less than ideal conditions when he was forced to parachute into a vineyard. His landing was treacherous and he lost his arm. This was tough for a guy who was a runner, cyclist, and triathlete, but Andy Wirth has never been known to be a quitter.

After getting his arm back and months of hardcore rehab he was able to do the things he loved once again, except this time he had the company of a group of Naby SEALS who were in Tahoe for their winter training. The friendships he created with those men has influenced Wirth to work for a great cause, the Navy Seals Foundation.

So what does the foundation do? “The Navy SEAL Foundation provides immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare Community and its families” according to it’s website. The Navy Seals are getting a lot of help and support from Wirth and two of his team members who have called themselves the “Special Warfare Warrior Support Team,” and they have been raising money to help Navy SEALS and their families.

These highly trained soldiers spend up to 270 days per year away from their loved ones in some of the harshest environments training and running military missions. They have chosen to make incredible sacrifices for their country and the foundation is there to help them. Since 9/11 SEALS have been stressed even further, and people like Andy Wirth are doing everything in their power to make it easier on them and their families.

The Navy SEALS Foundation needs all the help it can get. Contact them today and help them as they gladly help our country.
