Who We Support

Since 2015, The TB12 Foundation has awarded more than $1.5 Million to amateur athletes and organizations in need of assistance. The Foundation is focused on its mission to help athletes of diverse backgrounds achieve their goals, despite the physical or socioeconomic obstacles in their path.

What We Do:

SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM:

Since inception, the Foundation has provided more than 9,000 treatment sessions to sponsored athletes of all ages and backgrounds through our Scholarship Program, and that number continues to grow.  We’ve witnessed firsthand what a game-changer these services have been for every single one of our Foundation clients, and recently we broadened our mission, and expanded our reach to include a great deal more community-based work.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH:

The TB12 Body Coaches run sessions on functional strength and conditioning, cognitive health, pliability and active warm-ups, and provide group workouts and educational talks on nutrition and hydration to hundreds of teens and coaches through our partnership with the MIAA as well as individual schools and organizations in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and the Tampa, FL area.

BROCKTON & MALDEN HIGH SCHOOLS:

We’re thrilled to be partnering with our friends from Brockton High School for the second year in a row, and we’ve also expanded our program to include a new group of student-athletes from Malden High School, both in Massachusetts! 

As part of the program, groups of 12 student-athletes from each school come to our TB12 Sports Performance & Recovery Centers in Boston and Foxboro every month for pliability work with our Body Coaches, functional training and prehab exercises, and mentorship aimed at helping them be the best possible versions of themselves on and off the field. 

We’re proud to have this opportunity to deepen our commitment to these underserved athletes in our communities.  See the links below to videos highlighting our first year working with this incredible group of Brockton High School students.

In Their Own Words

Kevin Flike

Meet Special Forces Green Beret, and TB12 Foundation Client Kevin Flike. Kevin was a Green Beret in the United States Army for seven years. On September 25, 2011, during his second deployment to Afghanistan, he was shot in the stomach and suffered several injuries, requiring multiple surgeries. He was left with a fractured hip, paralyzed left leg, and was medically retired due to his injuries.

By Christmas of 2017, Kevin’s back hurt so bad that he spent most of the holiday lying flat on the floor. He knew something had to change, and finally decided, with a lot of skepticism, to try out the TB12 Sports Therapy Center in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Kevin revealed that after a few visits with the Sports Therapy Center’s top-notch Body Coaches, he was regaining mobility, strength, and endurance – and the most transformative development? He wasn’t living in constant pain – freeing up what he says was the mental energy he finally had to reach and then set new goals. Here’s Kevin’s story.

Nicole Dunbury

Meet TB12 Foundation Client Nicole Dunbury! Nicole was part of our inaugural class of students from the TB12 Foundation-Brockton HS program, and she now attendsNortheastern University on a full-ride scholarship and is part of their Division I track program. She was the first female athlete from Brockton to qualify for All-States, and her success on the track led her to dedicate her attention to track year-round.

After missing most of her sophomore year with a back injury, Nicole was eager to learn more about the TB12 Method and the benefits of recovery – especially as she transitions to college competition. We’re so proud of the progress that Nicole made as one of the 16 student-athletes in the first class of our program with Brockton High School and look forward to supporting her as she begins her college career at Northeastern!
