Who We Support

Since 2015, The TB12 Foundation has awarded more than $500,000 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.

To date, The TB12 Foundation has:

Provided more than 3,500 sessions to sponsored athletes, and that number continues to grow.
Granted $50,000 (for the second year in a row) to NextGen All America Football Camps to defray 2018-2019 admission fees for promising young athletes regardless of their financial means. The award supports the youth organization’s mission to provide exposure for the country’s best high school and middle school football players, with a focus this past season on the Camp’s TB12 QB Challenge – a course focused specifically on quarterback instruction.

Launched two in-kind partnerships through TB12, Inc. and the TB12 Foundation:

  • A collaboration with Haymakers for Hope, a charity that helps novice boxers train for and compete in boxing events to raise funds for cancer research and care. At a kick-off event last summer, participants were outfitted with TB12 fitness products and received additional guidance from TB12 Co-Founder Alex Guerrero and TB12’s team of Body Coaches as they prepared for their “Belle of the Ball” signature boxing event.
  • A partnership that supported the St. Jude Run/Walk to End Childhood Cancer. The 5k race raised funds for St. Jude Hospital, which fully funds treatment costs for children with cancer. TB12 Body Coaches helped with pre-race pliability treatments and post-race recovery, including donations of TB12 Protein Bars and TB12 Electrolytes. TB12, Inc. and the TB12 Foundation also donated the proceeds from sales of limited-edition t-shirts to the charity.

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.

Mike Chambers

Meet TB12 Foundation client Mike Chambers, a 33 year-old ultra-marathoner, hiker, ice climber and outdoorsman who suffered a devastating climbing accident left him with a broken tibia, dislocated shoulder, and later, a fractured heel bone.

His recovery at the TB12 Sports Therapy Center in Foxboro, MA, is well-documented in an oft-cited Men’s Journal article. His doctor advised him not to put weight on it for three months, but at ten weeks post-injury, he was not only walking already, he was actually climbing up the last pitch of New Hampshire’s Black Dike. After that, Chambers faced his toughest challenge: the Tahoe 200 Endurance Run, a 100 hour, 205.5-mile event around the Tahoe Rim Trail.
